Horyou and PVBLIC Foundation Join Forces to Bring International Visibility to Social Innovators, NGOs, and CSR Companies

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Oct 29, 2015) - Horyou, an international media company that promotes social good, hosted its second annual Social Innovation and Global Ethics Forum at the Bâtiment des Forces Motrices in Geneva, Switzerland, Oct. 23 - 25. PVBLIC Foundation was present at the event and is proud to continue creating opportunities for NGOs, CSR companies, entrepreneurs, and social innovators from around the world in partnership with Horyou.

Horyou is an Internet based global platform that emphasizes the importance of social media with purpose. Horyou provides a social network where people can connect from around the world to create action. The platform has evolved to include a variety of additions such as the Horyou Mobile App, Horyou TV, the Horyou Blog, and various international projects including SIGEF 2015.

The Horyou - PVBLIC collaboration began at last year's SIGEF 2014 and has gained momentum with the Horyou Village at the Cannes Film Festival 2015.

Horyou founder and CEO Yonathan Parienti stated, "We aim to facilitate the process of transforming positive ideas into concrete actions by encouraging a constructive relationship with technology. PVBLIC is an ideal partner. Their achievements are a true representation of social media with an impact. Our partnership will thus help international innovators share meaningful dialogue and gain international visibility."

At SIGEF 2015, PVBLIC Foundation Director of Strategic Alliances Eliane Sussman, spoke about Technology and the Global Social Movements for Positive Change. "We're honored to partner with Horyou because they provide an essential platform for connecting and engaging global citizens at a grass roots level. These kinds of partnerships are the way to solve complex global issues; we need to address them at the local level and create opportunities for local organizations to engage," - Sussman stated.

The first edition of SIGEF was held last year, hosting more than 2,500 participants and over 50 organizations from all over the world.

SIGEF 2015 had broader scope and international exposure. The event involved 5,000 participants, more than 50 international speakers and over 100 NGOs from different regions of the world. This year's event focused on proposing effective solutions to Shape Better Times to Come.
