OpenIDEO stopped by the 2014 Social Good Summit, a conference examining the role of technology on social good initiatives around the world. Held during UN Week in New York, a dynamic community of global thought leaders, technological innovators and creative problem solvers united to explore the question, "What type of world do I want to live in by the year 2030?" 

We were blown away by the insights and conversations that came together on the topic of unlocking technology's potential to create impact in the world. Check out some of our favorite inspiring moments:


On momentum for social good:
"How do we move conversation into action? Get stories out there."
On creating impact:
"Let's think big, be bold and create the world we want to live in."
On progress in the pursuit of conflict-free
"We have technology to do good – and with that comes great responsibility"
On empowering women and girls:
"We must take global agendas plus national agendas and make it a community agenda."
On going global:
"If we scale back on judgements and put emphasis on intentions, we can solve big global issues. Together."
