Check out the live stream of the Rio+Social conference brought to you by the UN Foundation, Mashable and 92Y. Lots of great talks. What is it?
Rio+Social promises to be one of the most important gatherings of technology, social media and global leaders in the history of South America. This global conversation, focusing on topics related to #SocialGood and how new media can help foster positive solutions to the world’s biggest problems, comes at a time when the world gathers to discuss issues that affect us all.
Following on the success of the annual Social Good Summit held in New York City during the high-level sessions of the UN General Assembly, Rio + 20 offers the next major moment at which the entire world will be watching as the global community comes together to develop a new sustainable future. This is an opportunity to take this conversation to a global level by leveraging the importance of technology and social media. The use of technology and digital media has changed the way we interact with each other and the world. Our efforts to find solutions to the issues that shape how we live are directly connected to technology and social media. Using “social” for “good” is a critical component for achieving positive outcomes at Rio + 20 and for the future we want.
