Social Good Summit (Part 1): Jessica Coen

If you’re part of the younger generation, the idea that you can live a full, healthy and happy life, long enough to see your own children grow, is slipping away because of the greatest threat to humanity: the climate crisis. That’s why we see teen activists like Greta Thunberg and Alexandria Villaseñor holding the megaphone, marching and leading the fight against climate change. They are determined for everyone else to wake up and do something, before irreversible damage is done to our planet.

This week, we are proud to work with the Social Good Summit to help amplify stories on their 10th anniversary. A decade ago, Mashable, United Nations Foundation, 92nd Street Y, and United Nations Development Program teamed up to launch a new kind of summit where global leaders, celebrities and activists would gather to celebrate activism, and where attendees would be galvanized into action. SGS will be held on Sunday, September 22nd at the 92nd Street Y. Attendees will hear from a diverse range of speakers, from activist Greta Thunberg to author Jonathan Safran Foer, Katie Couric, Chef Jose Andres, Connie Britton and many more.

In Part 1 of our SGS special, you’ll hear the journey of Jessica Coen, Editor in Chief and SVP at Mashable. Jessica has had a prolific career in media. She's held various editorial positions in publications like Vanity Fair and New York Magazine. Apart from her role as Editor in Chief and Head of Content at Mashable, she is also working with remarkable partners at SGS to put together an incredible day of of dialogue and onstage activations.
