Create the greatest solutions for the change the World needs Now

We are attending, and recommend you too


The Social Good Summit is 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, we 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 takes place September 22 – 24, 2012, but this is just the beginning of the conversation.

The 2012 Social Good Summit is brought to you by Mashable92nd Street Y, the United Nations FoundationEricsson, the United Nations Development Programme, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
