Social Good Summit meet-up 2013
First Social Good Summit İstanbul meet-up was organized last year, which ended with an invitation to the world to change the point of view in solving our greatest challenges with innovative social good projects for the future we want in 2030.
Organized with partnership of UNDP Turkey, Ericsson, Google, Kadir Has University, Webrazzi and UN Volunteers, the event kicked off on 24 September 2013 in Kadir Has University with a focus on youth and social media for social good.
Young leaders, who work in the field of social media, youth studies and innovative technology and who are active citizens making real changes for their society, shared their experiences with the larger audience on their successes, challenges and aspirations for the future.
Held during UN Week from September 21-22 September, the Social Good Summit unites a dynamic community of global leaders to discuss a big idea: the power of innovative thinking and technology to solve our greatest challenges.
Inspired by the Social Good Summit, +SocialGood unites a global community of innovators around a shared vision: Leveraging the power of technology and new media to make the world a better place.
+SocialGood is a place where connectors can collaborate, share best practices, influence local and global agendas, and find new ways to translate vision into action.
