When the Social Good Summit launched in 2010, the way we approached technology and new media was far more optimistic than the world we find ourselves in today.
In 2018, a tweet has the ability to pull us apart. An Instagram post can enrage. And Facebook trolls have the power to divide.
So as we become increasingly reliant on the digital and artificial, “how do we ensure that a world of greater technology is also a world of greater humanity?” asked Henry Timms, Social Good Summit Co-Founder & 92nd Street Y CEO, during this year’s Summit opening. And through a series of dialogues and panels centered on innovation and action at this year’s Social Good Summit, faith in humanity (or at least, its future) was restored.
