1. The Speakers:
Turning the public onto the world’s forward-thinking leaders is part of SGS’ job, so if perusing the #2030NOW speaker list leaves you feeling a little under-informed, rest assured that you’re not the only one. There are certainly enough recognizable names that the wow-factor won’t be lost on you, but for those that you’re unfamiliar with, a handful of BING searches will quickly bring you up to speed. (Yes, that was a shameless plug for a few of the speakers.) The easier route is to click here.
2. The Mission:
What’s not to love about a group of very talented, motivated, well-connected, tech-savvy people trying to make the world a better place, all while building a global, inclusive social good community that understands the value of collaborative thought and action? The big question: How can new technology and new media create solutions for the biggest problems facing my community and create a better future by the year 2030?
3. The Conversation:
With three-days’ worth of panel discussions ranging from how technology, data and digital media will shape our world; to knocking out malaria via mobile technology; to improving healthcare, empowering women as global leaders and youth as peacemakers, #SGS is the ultimate think tank and destination for anyone who truly believes that we all have the ability to make a difference in managing world issues—individually and collectively.
