his year, for the first time, the Social Good Summit is coming to Africa. On the September 24, 2012. Nairobi is hosting three hours of live panel discussions, as part of the three-day global Social Good Summit held annually in New York. The Summit is jointly organized by the United Nations Foundation, UNDP, Ericsson, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, 92Y, and, in Nairobi, the iHub.
We’ll be asking brilliant minds, influential leaders and cutting-edge innovators to explore tech solutions to some of the continent’s most pressing challenges. Their conversations will be streamed live to people all around the world, following the Social Good Summit in New York, Beijing and online.
With half a billion people under 20 and 700 million mobile phone users doing business online, Africa must be included in any global conversation on how we can use new media to solve problems. That’s why we want as many voices as possible to be heard.
Tell us the questions that you would ask our panelists, and post them on twitter using the #SGSNairobi hashtag.
We’ll be looking out for your blogs and tweets, linking to them from the global partners’ sites and retweeting them. And if we love your ideas, we’ll offer you the opportunity to come to the Summit and meet some of our panelists in person.
Or you can log onto www.socialgoodsummit.com and watch the panel discussions live from 4pm on the September 24.
We hope that you will join us at this year’s Social Good Summit in Nairobi!
