This year’s Social Good Summit got off to an exciting start with a video message from U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. She talked about the unprecedented opportunity each of us has to harness technology and social media to help build a better world. As she said, “We are living at a moment when anyone can be a diplomat. All you have to do is hit send.”
Her message underlines why this is an exciting moment for all of us who support the UN’s work to address global challenges. This is what the Social Good Summit is all about — bringing together world leaders and engaged citizens, technology enthusiasts and international development experts, bloggers and entrepreneurs to share ideas about how technology and innovative thinking can help solve the world’s greatest challenges. The United Nations Foundation is proud to be a partner in this extraordinary conversation. The Social Good Summit takes place from Saturday, September 22 through Monday, September 24, but you don’t have to be at the event to get involved.
