Clinton Global Initiative: Solving Global Problems through Innovation

In India, approximately 30% of the country's population - or 300 million people - do not have access to a dependable source of electricity.

Designing for Impact

This was my third year attending the Clinton Global Initiative Annual Meeting (CGI). It seems to get better every year. Between the world leaders, superstar nonprofit organizations, social entrepreneurs, foundations and corporations, former President Clinton has created a movement that is changing the world in sustainable ways.  At my first meeting, I was learning about environmental philanthropy and investigating potential partners.  Today it is all about our commitment to action, the amazing results of our first CGI commitment, and the announcement of our second. In the video below I discuss our commitment in a bit more detail.
