SGSSeptember 27-28, a dynamic community of global leaders and grassroots activists will unite at the 2015 Mashable Social Good Summit in New York City to discuss solutions to the greatest challenges of our time. 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 and continuing the theme from 2014, #2030NOW, speakers and attendees will address 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.

Mashable hosted the first Social Good Summit, and each year since has brought together world leaders, activists, and global citizens to discuss how technology can help solve some of the world’s greatest challenges. Mashable and partners, including the United Nations Foundation, the United Nations Development Programme and the 92nd Street Y, are planning the 2015 Social Good Summit to be bigger than ever.

The list of speakers for this year’s Summit includes:

• Kathy Calvin, President & CEO, United Nations Foundation
• Pete Cashmore, Founder & CEO, Mashable
• Richard Curtis, Director, Writer, Producer, Founder, Project Everyone
• Ger Duany, Actor and Goodwill Ambassador, UNHCR
• Adrian Grenier, Actor, Entrepreneur & Dell Social Good Advocate
• Savanna Guthrie, Co-Anchor of “Today” & Chief Legal Correspondent, NBC News
• Henry Timms, Executive Director, 92Y

More speakers for the 2015 will be announced soon.

Our own Shelton Mercer will be on site in the Digital Media Lounge, so stay tuned for live updates from Shelton during the Summit!
