How will the world look in 2030? How will you help shape it? #2030NOW.

A new generation of leaders, with an unprecedented amount of connectivity and a drive for social impact, is taking its seat at the table. The fourth annual Social Good Summit, a gathering of world leaders, technology pioneers, grassroots activists and engaged citizens, is centered on the future and what we can do about it: #2030NOW. Held during UN Week, the Summit asks: Will the solutions we are creating in today’s digital world truly have a lasting impact on our future and how are we paving the way for the next generation of innovation?

Whatever global challenges we face, we know that quick and simple fixes are not always the best for deep-rooted problems. #2030NOW will confront the status quo of social media and social change by forcing us to push the capacity and longevity of current technology.

This year’s Social Good Summit will be more engaging than ever. People from around the world, in both the developed and the developing world, will unite in person and online to participate in The Global Conversation – the world’s largest conversation on how technology can grow communities and improve life for all of us as we move toward being a networked society.

Be a part of the world’s largest conversation on how technology can foster creative connections and new ideas to improve life for all of us. Join us for the 2013 Social Good Summit, brought to you by Mashable, 92nd Street Y, the United Nations FoundationEricsson, the United Nations Development Programme and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Last year, people in over 300 cities in 150 countries joined the Summit conversation happening in New York City by organizing in-person or online meetings in their own communities, and connecting via video and social media. Once again, this year’s Summit will be a GLOBAL CONVERSATION and we want you to take part!
