"There are now more than 2.3 billion active social media users worldwide—about a third of the planet’s population. This ubiquitous presence makes the internet an unavoidable part of any strategy to build a better world for everyone, everywhere, leaving no one behind. If the third of the world which is presently on social media could engage more in discourse around how to solve the problems we face, we would have a better chance of bringing the world to where we would like it to be."
These are the words of former UNDP Administrator Helen Clark in our Vice President's Adam Rogers latest book, and the aim of the World Summit of Social Media Influencers for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which took place online on 19 June and reached millions of viewers.
The conference was being organized by ConnectAID, the International Solidarity Network, which is the world’s first combined social impact network and communication support provider dedicated to the Global Goals.
