Speakers examine how Somalia’s youth are using social media and technology to create opportunities for themselves and build a better future for their country
The UN-backed platform will stream live a first-of-its-kind discussion among Somali change- makers to the world from Mogadishu on Monday.
The platform, dubbed, the Social Good Summit is a global conversation on how technology and new media can be harnessed to address some of the world’s greatest challenges.
“Somali innovators, business owners, information technology experts, community activists, educators, journalists, government officials and development workers will come together to discuss how new technology is increasingly being embraced to rebuild the country,” the UNDP Communications specialist Aimee Brown said in a statement issued in Nairobi on Saturday.
