SNS platforms in China

Darren Gan - 09/21/2014

When I was picked as the fellow for Social Good Summit in New York, I have some concerns.

The fellowship encourages attendees to blog in Facebook and do tweets in Twitter. However, as you might know, Facebook and Twitter is blocked in Mainland China due to some reasons. So I couldn’t help wondering, how can I deliver the... read more

#2030NOW!

Kate Kiama - 09/22/2014

I always thought I would one day grow to be a diplomat and walk in the corridors that few have access to. It’s not the glitz or the glam that fascinate me the most but rather the immense power and ability to make real change that these people have. It may also have a lot to do with the frustration that our leaders are not really hearing my opinion and thousand other people views!… read more

Education for All in #2030NOW

Trina Talukdar - 09/25/2014

Education- the one theme that leaped out to me from the diverse panels at the Social Good Summit. Be it a panel on empowering girls, Michael Roth‘s charismatic talk on “How to Change the World,” or, celebrities like Alicia Keys and Lily Cole, on the Social Good Summit stage, they all agreed that education is the one, true, powerful tool solve most social problems… read more

SGS[4] Beyond anger: How can we make this movement?

Myounghwa Hwang - 09/28/2014

During the Social Good Summit, I have thought about social changes, movement and action. To move forward with changing the world, we need people’s support. We cannot make these changes by one person’s power or money. As one of people who are belonging to the social movement, this has been challenges for long time, since I started my career in the third sector. I believe, not only myself but also other social activists face similar challenges. On the first day of the Summit, one panelist… read more

Conversations from the bottom of the ocean

Victoria Dangond - 09/23/2014

I do not live in a pineapple or wear square pants if that is what you are wondering, but today at the Social Good Summit in New York I met Cousteau, Fabien Cousteau.

It was only fitting to talk about #DeepProblems with one of the Cousteaus (Fabien is the third generation… read more

What is education all about?

Isaiah Owolabi - 09/22/2014

The word ‘educated’ is used to describe different people depending on the circumstance or the display of knowledge. In the real essence of it what does it mean to be educated or what does education really mean? I am not going to try to define these terms but I will like to explain what I think education should do for a society… read more

Golden Match! We need a new platform for Non-profit Org and Profit Entity like a Match.com

Sook Hee Yuk - 09/23/2014

미국에 와서 연락하고 지내던 친구와 헤어지고 우울함이 해수면을 찍고 있던 시점, 외국인 친구들이 나에게 심심하게 지내지 말고 취미생활을 공유할 수 있는 친구를 만나보라고 추천해준 몇개의 데이트 웹싸이트가 있었다. 인연은 그렇게 온라인을 통해서 만나는 것이 아니라며 부정적인 내게 상당히 많은 사람들이 그 웹싸이트를 이용하고 있었고, 의외로 평가나 후기는 긍정적인 편이었다. 그렇게 알게 된 데이트 싸이트 Match.com 과... read more

No longer business as usual

Munya Malunga - 09/22/2014

The 2014 Social Good Summit brings together a diverse and rich array of speakers and participants, bearing testimony to the depth and breadth of skills and talents the world has. But the Social Good Summit is not happening in a vacuum; the Ebola crisis in West Africa, the conflicts in the Middle East and Climate Change all form an obtrusive background to the Summit. These challenges are familiar and have been around for a long time and it is time the challenges confronting the world today be viewed as multi-disciplinary in nature… read more
