Social Good Summit 2012 (New York City)

Mashable is one of social media authorities that I've relied on to keep me updated on not only the latest trends but also how non-profits can make use of them. So imagine how excited I was to find out that on UN Week, Mashable is co-hosting the Social Good Summit here in New York City.

What's the summit about?

The Social Good Summit is a three-day conference where big ideas meet new media to create innovative solutions. Held during UN Week from September 22-24, 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. The most innovative technologists, influential minds and passionate activists will come together with one shared goal: to unlock the potential of new media and technology to make the world a better place, and then to translate that potential into action.

What if you're not in New York?

Join the summit in other cities

Good news for my friends back home in Asia! They're taking the summit to Beijing on September 24th! They'll be in Kenya, too, on the same day.

Join a meetup

Several meetups have been planned in multiple cities around the globe. Check out their site for the full list. Not to be left out, Manila has one on September 22nd at the Asian Institute of Management. You will need to register in advance to attend, get more information here, and be sure to follow @TweetupMNL to stay updated.

Join us online

They'll be livestreaming the summit online, and anyone talking about the conference will be using the hashtag #SGSglobal. (I'll most probably be live tweeting so be sure to follow @emilydy).

Can't wait for the weekend!
