The Social Good Summit is a three-day conference where big ideas meet new media to create innovative solutions. Held during UN Week, the Social Good Summit unites a dynamic community of global leaders to discuss a big idea: the power of innovative thinking and technology to solve our greatest challenges. This September, they want YOU to join the conversation with leaders and citizens from around the globe. The most innovative technologists, influential minds and passionate activists will come together with one shared goal: to unlock the potential of new media and technology to make the world a better place, and then to translate that potential into action.
This year’s Social Good Summit will be more engaging than ever. People from around the world, in both the developed and the developing world, will unite in person and online to participate in The Global Conversation – the world’s largest conversation on how technology can grow communities and improve life for all of us as we move toward being a networked society. The Social Good Summit in New York City takes place September 22 – 24, 2012, but this is just the beginning of the global conversation.
No matter where you live, this year YOU have a seat at the Social Good Summit.
On Monday September 24, 2012, the Social Good Summit is aiming to make history. On that day (or around that day if it works better for you) they are inviting people all over the world to create and join Meetups to connect with other people to answer the same big question: “How can new technology and new media create solutions for the biggest problems facing my community?”
The goal is to hear the voices and ideas of people everywhere. To bring together a global social good community, tackling the same question, exchanging information and sharing the same spirit and the same hashtag #SGSglobal.
