Clinton Global Initiative
Established in 2005 by President Bill Clinton, the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) brings together international leaders to devise innovative solutions to some of the world’s most pressing challenges. The mission of CGI is to turn ideas into action.
Laureate has partnered with CGI since 2008 on a number of initiatives:
Laureate supports CGI’s annual meetings and webcasts them to students in auditoriums and classrooms throughout our global network.
Laureate sponsors and sends students to the Clinton Global Initiative University, which challenges college students to address global issues with practical, innovative solutions.
Laureate has made two commitments to CGI to provide more than 1,000 scholarships to teachers around the world, and to recognize, train and promote 500 young social entrepreneurs worldwide.
