New media and technology are changing the way people communicate, but they can also help change the world for the better.

That is the premise of the Social Good Summit (www.socialgoodsummit.org) to be held from 22-24 September on the margins of the annual UN General Assembly.

While the 92nd Street Y, a cultural institution in New York City, is the home base for this year's event, the conversation will be global with participation from people all across the world.

To find out more, Dianne Penn spoke to Aaron Sherinian of the UN Foundation, a summit sponsor alongside the UN Development Programme (UNDP), the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Mashable, and Ericsson.
