What type of world do you want to live in by the year 2030? That's the question that Mashable's Social Good Summit will examine in New York next week, in two days of discussion on the impact of technology and new media on global social good initiatives.
Pushing participants to think about pressing, modern issues will be formidable speakers such as former US president Jimmy Carter, Mashable founder Pete Cashmore and "Happy" musician Pharrell Williams, in sessions like "Connecting for Good, Connecting for All," "Social Good Around the World" and "Creating a Do-Good Economy." The gathering is backed by some of the biggest names in good doing today, including the United Nations Foundation and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and will be held on September 21-22. Tickets are available through 92nd Street Y.
And as if that didn't sound perfectly positive enough, the organizers have teamed up with AudioNow, a unique communication service which makes events and radio stations available via 'call-to-listen' technology. So whether you're busy in New York, traveling in Thailand or all about doing good in New Zealand, you can tune in to whatever sessions on the conference agenda tickle your fancy.
