Live Webcast: Students to Take on Global Challenges

If young people are the hope of the future, then the sixth annual Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI U) is about to become the focal point for a lot of hope — as well as action.

Students CollaboratingOn April 5-7 at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, more than 1,000 students representing more than 300 universities and 75 countries will gather to address the world’s most pressing challenges.

And you can be part of it. View a full meeting agenda now, tune into and share session webcasts during and after the event, join the twitter conversation at #CGIU and keep up with meeting news on Facebook.

Student attendees won’t just talk about issues. They’ll do something to solve them. Relationship-building activities, plenary sessions and hands-on workshops culminate in each student developing a commitment to action — a concrete, measurable plan to address global change. On the final day, 800 attendees and volunteers will participate in a day-long service project to give back to the local St. Louis community.

Business, nonprofit and student leaders will also take part. Dell Inc., a sponsor for the event, has demonstrated a longstanding commitment to advancing women in technology and to providing students with next-generation educational solutions.

On April 6 at 9:00 a.m. Central Time, join a live webcast with Steve Felice, president and chief commercial officer at Dell, and other panelists in the plenary session, A Better Future for Girls & Women: Empowering the Next Generation, moderated by Chelsea Clinton.
