The Social Good Summit was held in New York on September 21 and 22. This is an annual two day conference linking global leaders and activists aimed at making a better world. The School of Diplomacy had the event ably covered by two Social Good Summit Bloggers selected by UNA-USA: Dana Terry and Yesenia Lugo. Both are 2014 graduates of the School of Diplomacy.

When asked to sum up the Summit, Yesenia noted:

“For me, it was the first time that I attended a Social Good Summit and it proved life-changing, inspiring and overwhelming. I was unexpectedly moved to learn from first time panelists, such as Mike Soskil, the fruits that passion and positive results stem from simple global collaboration. I left feeling hopeful that someday the world will be a better and more equitable place for all.”

Dana added:

“The Social Good Summit brings together some of the world’s top thought-leaders, activists, and social entrepreneurs to discuss multifaceted solutions that harness the power of human capital and innovation for a better world. The Summit urges us to ask ourselves what kind of a world we want to live in by 2030 and then take ownership of that vision to make it a reality. We are all part of the connective tissue of society; together, we may each have a role in its healing.”
