Nothing But Nets supports the work of the United Nations by fighting malaria around the world. You have all helped us raise awareness, funds, and voices to help the global community end this disease for good.
Next week, world leaders will gather in New York for the United Nations General Assembly, where they will discuss some of the greatest challenges of our time. And there’s an opportunity for you to join that conversation.
On September 21-22, people from Jakarta to Johannesburg to New York will be joining the global conversation through the 2014 Social Good Summit. Participants include heads of United Nations agencies, leaders of top non-governmental organizations, and celebrities such as Alicia Keys, Connie Britton, and Pharrell Williams.
Global problems can’t be solved by governments alone. That’s why entrepreneurs, experts, and advocates like you will come together at the Social Good Summit around the theme, “#2030NOW: Connecting for Good. Connecting for All.” Together, we’ll exchange ideas on how to use technology and new media to build a more equitable, peaceful, and prosperous world.
You can join in too! All the Social Good Summit events will be livestreamed in several languages online. Be sure to tweet your support for the fight against malaria with @nothingbutnets and use the hashtag #2030NOW. If you want to continue the conversation through UN Week, use the hashtag #UNGA.
