About the Meeting

The third annual CGI U meeting brought together students, university presidents, and national youth organizations to create and implement Commitments to Action across five Focus Areas: Education, Environment & Climate Change, Peace & Human Rights, Poverty Alleviation, and Public Health. The meeting was held from April 16-18th, 2010 at the University of Miami.

CGI U 2010 was arranged around plenary sessions, working sessions, and skill sessions, all of which allowed members to interact with one another and formulate commitments and productive partnerships.

Whether discussing the education of marginalized populations or the worldwide struggle against infectious diseases, each session was informed by university leaders, student activists, heads of leading NGOs, topic experts, and others who have created positive change in the global community. Participants were also invited to participate in CGI U Exchange, an exhibition allowing meeting attendees to learn more about the commitments and organizations present at the CGI U Meeting. On Sunday, CGI U members took part in an innovative service project which allowed students to give back to the greater Miami community.
