A brilliant use of the internet is the live feeds of the Clinton Global Initiative, where you get a front row seat to this annual gathering of current and former heads of state, global CEOs, Nobel Peace Prize winners, philanthropists, directors of foundations and non-government organizations (NGOs), celebrities and members of the media.
As stated on the website: “In 2005, President Clinton established CGI to turn ideas into action and to help our world move beyond the current state of globalization to a more integrated global community of shared benefits, responsibilities, and values. By gathering world leaders from a variety of backgrounds, CGI creates a unique opportunity to channel the capacities of individuals and organizations to realize change. To fulfill the action-oriented mission of CGI, all members devise practical solutions to global issues through the development of specific and measurable Commitments to Action.”
You can watch the keynotes, choose among breakout sessions, and hear from world leaders about making a difference. I worked at the conferences for the first two years and it was like the most impressive VIP club in the world. The availability of this live webfeed (in addition to archived presentations) is extraordinary. Watch it when you can — you are sure to come away inspired and wanting your commitment to make a difference count.
