The Social Good Summit will begin this Sunday! To add to the Conversations that Matter, we’re excited to share just a few of the Summit sessions featuring partners and friends of all of us here at Million Moms Challenge.

will.i.amSustainable Energy and Global Youth: Making a Complex Issue Fun and Accessible for a Measurable Difference (Sunday, September 22nd: Dick Gephardt, President & CEO, Gephardt Government Affairs; Jeff Martin, CEO & Founder, Tribal Brands, Inc. and Tribal Technologies, Inc.; Jessica Matthews, CEO, Uncharted Play, Inc.; Kathy Calvin, CEO, United Nations Foundation; Nebahat Albayrak, VP of External Affairs, Upstream International at Shell; Rebecca Grynspan, Under-Secretary-General and UNDP Associate Administrator, United Nations; and, 7-time Grammy winner, producer, entrepreneur and philanthropist)
Kathy Calvin, CEO of our partner United Nations Foundation, joins a stellar line-up for a panel to discuss the difference our youth are making on a global level. What are youth doing around the world to make a difference in the world of sustainable energy? How are they spreading the word amongst their peers to make it fun and accessible so that they may succeed? And how successful and impactful are they in their endeavors?

Keynote Listener (Monday, September 23rd; Melinda Gates, Co-chair, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation)
A new concept this year, Keynote Listeners have been added to the agenda. What does Keynote Listener do? “Keynote Listeners will spend time interacting with Summit participants, both in-person and online, to hear their thoughts about how we tackle our world’s biggest challenges [and] will report their findings and reflections onstage at 92Y.” We are so excited to hear from prominent global leader Melinda Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Innovating Mobile Health for Present and Future Generations (Monday, September 23rd; Sarah Ingersoll, Director, text4baby)
Our partner text4baby is an innovative leader in healthcare through mobile communication. Maternal and child health care text messages are sent to women around the world via their cell phones. How is that helping now? What does this kind of service look like 10, 20, 30 years from now?
