PVBLIC Foundation and the United Nations Office for Partnerships will host the fourth annual Media for Social Impact Summit, on September 14th, at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City. This year’s summit will unite 200 top media executives to foster intelligent conversation about the power of media to address the world’s most pressing social and developmental issues.
The Summit’s agenda is designed to highlight the most engaging and collaborative campaigns in the social impact space.
“The goal of the summit is to aggregate the power of this room full of media representatives and influencers to change the conversation the same way we [media] have the power to create brands, influence people what to do what or what wear and where to shop. We believe that this power of influence could also be utilized to engage people, to support organizations, to do good and to make people care about our world.” explains Sergio Fernandez de Cordova, Co-Founder and Chairman of PVBLIC.
