The 10th annual CGI U meeting will take place October 13-15, 2017 at Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts. The meeting will bring together more than 1,100 innovative student leaders to make Commitments to Action in CGI U's five focus areas: Education, Environment and Climate change, Peace and Human Rights, Poverty Alleviation, and Public Health. Through the CGI University Network and other opportunities, over $750,000 in funding will be available to select CGI U 2017 students to help them turn their ideas into action.
Student attendees will have the opportunity to attend plenary sessions, working sessions, and other special events which will enable them to network with their peers, build skills, and identify potential partners. The program will feature dozens of topic experts, university representatives, and celebrities who will join students at CGI U to discuss effective solutions to some of world’s most pressing challenges. During the last day of the meeting, attendees will take part in a Day of Action in the local community.
