Building on the successful model of the Clinton Global Initiative, President Clinton launched the Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI U) in 2007 to engage the next generation of leaders on college campuses around the world. CGI U’s driving philosophy is that anyone, anywhere can make a difference through a Commitment to Action—a tangible contribution towards solving a specific problem on their campus or in the wider global community. Each year, CGI U hosts a meeting for students, national youth organizations, and university officials to discuss solutions to pressing global issues.
I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to apply to attend CGI U 2010, where you will join President Clinton, 1200 students, nearly 100 college and university presidents, NGOs, national youth organizations, athletes and celebrity-activists to discuss global problems! Over the three-day meeting, attendees will participate in forums and working sessions to formulate new ways to make a difference.
CGI U 2010: APRIL 16-18, Miami, FL.
