SGS

Innovative technologists, influential minds and passionate activists will gather at the renowned Strathmore Business School (SBS) on September 24, 2013 to add their voices to this year’s Social Good Summit. Now in its fourth year, the SGS was started to investigate how key individuals are pioneering social efforts that will leave lasting impacts.

The Social Good Summit “family” already includes over 1.5 million people who have participated in person, online, or as part of the +SocialGood platform.

The Summit has explored the power of technology to instantly connect us together, donate to a charity in one click, disseminate news as it’s happening, and break barriers of access in the most remote parts of the world.

In 2013, the organisers are challenging the nature of instant gratification and our current digital culture. This year’s theme, #2030NOW, will support the United Nation’s post-2015 development agenda by asking: how do we use innovation now to build our future?  

BAKE will manage a  ‘Digital Lounge’ at the same venue – where print and online journalists will be able to follow the panels, alongside social media enthusiasts and digital activists. One of our members, Njeri Wangare-Wanjohi will take part in taking part in one of the panels.

If you would like to have access to the digital lounge please get in touch with us at robert@bake.or.ke

In the meantime, everyone is invited to join the conversation already building here: #2030NOW

So in a nutshell,
