July 7, 2016

The Social Good Summit is one of our very favorite events. It is a two-day conference examining the impact of technology and new media on social good initiatives around the world. Held during UN Week in New York City (and with hundreds of meet-ups around the world) the Social Good Summit unites a dynamic community of global leaders and grassroots activists to discuss solutions for the greatest challenges of our time.

No less than five nobel peace prize winners have spoken on the Social Good Summit main stage during the last 6 years of this incredible event.
