MANILA, Philippines – With social media, YOU can be a hero.

While at face value these are merely words, wait until you see what we have in store for you. 

On September 21, 2013, Rappler launches an initiative that brings together the government, private sector and citizens to address the need for disaster risk reduction and management.

Together with Google, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and several key partners representing various sectors, Rappler brings to you the PH+SocialGood: The Manila Social Good Summit on Saturday, 9am to 5pm at the Asian Institute of Management. 

The event will feature a group of international and local speakers who are experts in the field of climate change, crisis mapping, disaster risk reduction, technology and social media.

The Philippine leg takes place a day before Mashable’s Social Good Summit 2013 happens in New York City where Rappler CEO and +Social Good Global Adviser Maria Ressa is a speaker.
