Agenda





 

Meeting Theme

 


How can we design our world to create more opportunity and more equality? How are we designing our lives, our environments, and the global systems we employ in order to impact the challenges at hand?

The 2012 Annual Meeting will explore how the Clinton Global Initiative community can utilize our abundance of global capacity to invent better tools, build more effective interventions, and work creatively and collaboratively to design a future worth pursuing. Each day of the Annual Meeting, CGI members will use a different lens to approach designing their work for impact.
