The Clinton Global Initiative 2010 Annual Meetings are in full swing! Bill Clinton started this organization in 2005, “to help our world move beyond the current state of globalization to a more integrated global community of shared benefits, responsibilities, and values.”

The Clinton Global Initiative focuses on the following four areas:

  • Global Health
  • Economic Empowerment
  • Energy & Climate Change
  • Education

The CGI is a great organization which brings together global thought leaders to discuss the worlds most pressing issues.  Check out the links below to continue the journey of informed citizenship.

Thanks for reading!
