How do we use digital tools to solve our greatest challenges, and plan for a brighter future by 2030? A dynamic community of global leaders will address this question and more at the fourth annual Social Good Summit, taking place Sept. 22-24 in New York City.
We want YOU to join the conversation with leaders and citizens from around the globe. On September 24, we are inviting people throughout the world to connect at local Meetups to talk about our core theme: #2030NOW.
Our goal is to empower people everywhere to have their voices be heard, both during and after the Social Good Summit event. Help us create one of the biggest and most powerful global conversations the world has ever seen by organizing or attending a Global Conversation Meetup in your area.

The 2013 Social Good Summit is brought to you by Mashable, 92nd Street Y, the United Nations Foundation, Ericsson, the United Nations Development Programme and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
We will be meeting at Fly Bar & Restaurant tonight to discuss the questions below. This is just meant to be an informal get together where people can exchange ideas and connect locally to be part of the global conversation. Some questions that could serve as jumping off points for discussion are:
How are organizations and individuals in your field using new media in creative ways to advocate for important issues?
What innovative technologies are you seeing in your area of interest, and what kind of impact is it having in your community?
Where are local, regional, and global leaders listening? How are they participating in the conversation?
I plan to take notes and share your ideas with the +SocialGood community online. http://www.plussocialgood.org/News
You can also live tweet your ideas at #2030Now
Hope to see you later today!
