The fifth Annual Meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) is fast approaching, and FiveCurrents is preparing for a guest list that includes global leaders from business, government, academia, science, religion, and non-governmental organizations, including numerous heads of state, former heads of state, CEOs of multinational corporations, and prominent philanthropists. And this year, CGI will have a very special guest, President Barack Obama, who will address the opening session of the Fifth Annual Meeting on Tuesday, September 22nd.
FiveCurrents’ President and Executive Producer of CGI, Scott Givens, said, “We are really looking forward to the fifth Annual Meeting and once again creating a forum for participants to come together to develop solutions to some of the world’s most pressing challenges.”
At CGI, world leaders will identify critical areas for action and collaboration across a multitude of sectors, ranging from education, and energy and climate change to global health and the economic empowerment. The fifth Annual Meeting will address global challenges via four new action areas: Harnessing Innovation for Development, Strengthening Infrastructure, Building Human Capital, and Financing an Equitable Future.
Since 2005, more than 100 current and former heads of state; hundreds of leading CEOs, philanthropists, and NGO leaders; and 10 of the last 16 Nobel Peace Prize laureates have attended CGI’s Annual Meeting.
