Social Good Summit 2012
Dear Palindrome community -
On behalf of all of us, I hope you're having a fantastic start to the fall season.
We are pleased to announce that tomorrow, Palindrome Chairman, Zaw Thet and Palindrome Director, Chris Kelly will be speaking at the Social Good Summit in New York. The talk will be centered around “New Ideas in Philanthropy– new forms of social media and digital platforms and the role they are playing both in philanthropy and politics.” While their discussion will surely be a fantastic opportunity to learn more about how technology is empowering philanthropy – the talk will also launch a project that Palindrome has been producing with the United Nations Foundation for the last three months. While we can't say more about this project now, stay tuned in the coming days as we will be posting more detailed information on the Palindrome site.
More information to follow about the launch we've been eagerly awaiting for months!
More about the social good summit:
The Social Good Summit is a three-day conference where big ideas meet new media to create innovative solutions, and 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. Held at the 92nd Street Y in New York 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. 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.
