Successful Social Good Summit Cebu 2012

I believe this is the first Social Good Summit ever held in Cebu and indeed a successful one. This was organized by Cebu Bloggers Society Inc. and it was held at Marcelo Fernan Cebu Press Center.

Held at the heart of UN week, the Social Good Summit is where big ideas meet new media to create innovative solutions. The 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. It ignites conversations between a live audience in New York City and thousands around the world participating via Livestream. The most innovative technologists, influential minds and passionate activists will come together this September with one shared goal: to unlock the potential of new media and technology to make the world a better place.

The international event aims to gather leaders, thinkers and influencers to answer the challenge, “How can new technology and new media create solutions for the biggest problems facing my community?”
