The 6th annual Social Good Summit is going to be held on September 27th and 28th, it’s going to be a 2 days event to be held in New York at 92nd Street Y, at the United Nations General Assembly where people from all walks of life and sectors of the economy would participate and utilise this platform for the benefit of all. This summit is held once a year in the month of September to discuss world issues and to find a solution to them.
This time the Summit would be coinciding with the United Nations week, which would be followed by a week full of various activities that would be held worldwide by the Social Good Community locally, in the places where ever they are. The main aim of the local meet ups is that people across the world can participate in these positive activities as all cannot attend the Summit to be held in New York but can still be a part of it
There are many welfare events happening worldwide and many people big or small in status are working towards the betterment of the society and are trying to do whatever they can within their capacity, feeling their responsibility to pay back to the society. As no particular organisation or even the United Nations alone cannot solve the global issues, this has to be a global effort and that can be done when all the individuals wherever they are do their part. It is because of the kindness of the people the world is moving forward steadily otherwise if all the individuals would have thought about their wellbeing only then the global issues could have never been solved and the Social Good Summit is also a similar platform that cares for the wellbeing of the worldwide human beings, where the participants focus on how the technology and the new media can be leveraged to address the world issues from which people can benefit in totality to build a better future
