Nairobi will be a central hub of the Social Good Summit, ensuring that Africa, home to half a billion people under the age of 20 (and 700 million mobile phone users!) is a major part of this global conversation.
Hosted by UNDP, the Social Good Summit in Nairobi will have a great line up of innovators and technology experts who’ll discuss ways to use new media to solve poverty and hunger in Africa. Speakers include:
- Amira Mikhail, the renowned Egyptian blogger and key figure in the 2011 Egyptian pro-democracy protests.
- Just A Band, the hugely popular Kenyan band who launched their first hit on Youtube.
Mark your calendar to watch the live stream from Nairobi on Monday, 9/24, 9am-12pm EDT (13:00-15:45 GMT or 16:00- 18:45 EAT.)
