The UN Foundation, Mashable and the 92nd Street Y are hosting the UN Week Digital Media Lounge for press and bloggers as world leaders convene in New York for the UN General Assembly and the Millennium Development Goals Review Summit. The UN Week Digital Media Lounge is hosting panels and discussion all week on issues related to the MDGs -- including one panel, moderated by Adele Waugaman from the UN Foundation and Vodafone partnership, on technology and disaster relief. That panel, which will examine disaster relief after the January earthquake in Haiti, will feature representatives from OCHA, Ushahidi, Crisis Commons and the U.S. State Department.
