Cebu Bloggers Society Inc. hosted the very first Social Good Summit here in Cebu which was held in Marcelo Fernan Cebu Press Center.

This event was made possible by United Nations Foundation and Mashable, with Cebu Bloggers Society Inc. as the local organizer of the summit.



This event was organized for a very good cause. In the advent of modern technology and various problems arising in our society, we are all called for the challenge, “How can new technology and new media create solutions for the biggest problems facing my community?”
