From Conference to Community: The Social Good Summit

Inspiration, Featured

 

For the past three years, I have attended the Social Good Summit — a conference looking to eradicate serious social problems in our world.  This week I spent two days in a theatre in New York City listening to some of the biggest thinkers from around the world, leaders from the United Nations, NGO and business leaders, and even actors sharing ideas about how to change the world using digital means. I felt it was different this year for me — more powerful and more connected — perhaps because I’ve become more personally and professionally involved in many of Social Good Summit’s goals: anti-poaching, education, equality, climate change, to name a few.

The Social Good Community has proposed 17 new Sustainable Development Goals to work toward: End extreme poverty, fight inequality, combat illiteracy, and 14 others all by the year 2030. Ponder which ones you might focus on this year.
