The creation of the Social Good Summit (launched in 2012) is attributed to Jeremy Heimans ( Avaaz/Purpose co-founder) & and Henry Timms (92nd Street Y) - the authors of "New Power".
It was created in partnership with the United Nations Foundation, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Ericsson, the United Nations Development Programme, & Mashable.

Following the Social Good Summit was the launch of the "SocialGood community". The founding partners include the Gates Foundation, the Case Foundation, Caterpillar, Cisco, Enactus, Mashable, Rockefeller Foundation, UNDP, the United Nations Foundation, & the 92Y.
“Progress in the next 15 years & beyond—including effectively setting & achieving the next set of global development goals—can’t just be left to the same old power players...
"... Now you can actively involve people in shaping these goals, using new participatory, transparent, & bottom-up new power models."
"New Power +SocialGood is presented by +SocialGood and Purpose”
Other speakers next month include Christiana Figueres - Founding Partner, Global Optimism & Former Executive Secretary, UN Climate Convention, Kumi Naidoo & Secretary General of Amnesty International.

Also featured is Achim Steiner (far left). Administrator, UNDP. Former advisory board member of TEEB - which is now the Natural Capital Coalition (financialization of nature - a.k.a "New Deal for Nature").
Oh, & here is Achim Steiner in 2009 promoting the Green New Deal. (h/t @spencerlatu)

@spencerlatu Here is the Real New Deal:

@spencerlatu @ProlekultFilms The big sell is the UN Global Goals.

"2020 Don't Be Late" - we have treasuries to loot, pensions to unlock and billionaires to be saved.

@spencerlatu @ProlekultFilms “New power: “The ability to harness the connected crowd to get what you want” – Jeremy Heimans, co-founder Purpose/Avaaz
