Don't miss the Social Good Summit September 27-28 in New York. The Social Good Summit is a two-day conference examining the impact of technology and new media on social good initiatives around the world. The theme, #2030NOW, asks the question, “What type of world do I want to live in by the year 2030?”

I love this initiative from Ikea and UNHCR where they have teamed up with companies and academy to create shelter solutions for people who lost their homes due to conflicts and natural disaster.
A perfect example of collaboration and synergies between corporate know-how and NGO's.
Ikea has created 10 000 of these shelters which will be distributed by UNHCR later this year.
