The Social Good Summit 2014 will take place during UN Week in September


Our friends at Young European Leadership are sending a delegation to the Social Good Summit in New York and have asked us to share their call for applications with E&M readers.  Full details can be found on the YLA website.

The Social Good Summit is a two-day conference examining the impact of technology and new media on social good initiatives around the world. Held during UN Week from 21 - 22 September, the Social Good Summit unites a dynamic community of global leaders and grassroots activists to discuss solutions for the greatest challenges of our time. The theme, "#2030NOW, Connecting for Good, Connecting for All", asks the question, "What type of world do I want to live in by the year 2030?" During the Social Good Summit, global citizens around the world unite to unlock the potential of technology to make the world a better place.   Young European Leadership is invited to send a delegation of 10 to attend the Summit, to join the global discussion on #2030 now, and to actively contribute to its success. YEL applies rolling admission. The first application deadline is 31 July 2014.
