In "It's Your World: Get Informed, Get Inspired & Get Going!" Chelsea Clinton tackles the biggest challenges facing us today. She combines facts, charts, photographs and stories to give readers a deep understanding of the world around them and how anyone can make a difference. With stories about children and teens who have made real changes big and small, this book inspires readers of all ages to do their part to make our world a better place. 
 
One of Clinton's favorite childhood books was "50 Simple Things Kids Can Do to Save the Earth"; as an elementary school student in Little Rock, AR, she helped start a paper-recycling program at her school; as a teenager in Washington, D.C., she led her school's service club; and as a student at Stanford University, she volunteered as a reading and writing tutor and at the Children's Hospital. 
 
Today, she is Vice Chair of the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation where her focus is especially on work related to health, girls and women, creating service opportunities, and empowering the next generation of leaders. Chelsea holds a BA from Stanford University, an MPH from Columbia University, and an MPhil and doctorate degree in international relations from Oxford University.

This event is held in partnership with the Clinton Foundation, Clinton School of Public Service, and AT&T.
