Social Good Summit 2012

The Social Good Summit is a 3-day conference where big ideas meet new media to create innovative solutions. Held during UN Week from September 22-24, the Social Good Summit unites a dynamic community of global leaders to discuss a big idea. Here is a collection of impressions from the first two days


  1. The most innovative technologists, influential minds and passionate activists came 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.
