University of Miami to Host CGI U

Tuesday, April 13, 2010

The third annual CGI U meeting, produced by FiveCurrents, is taking place this year at the University of Miami, April 16 – 18. The meeting will bring together students, university presidents, and national youth organizations┬áto create and implement Commitments to Action across five Global Challenge Areas : Education, Environment & Climate Change, Peace & Human Rights, Poverty Alleviation, and Public Health.

The CGI U 2010 meeting will be arranged around plenary sessions, working sessions, and skill sessions, all of which allow 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 is informed by university leaders, student activists, heads of leading NGOs, topic experts, and others who have created positive change in the global community. On Sunday, April 18th, CGI U members will take part in an innovative service project at the Miami-Dade County Homeless Trust’s homestead homeless complex, which will allow students to give back to the greater Miami community.
