On September 23, EARTH President José Zaglul will represent the University at the 2014 Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) Annual Meeting in New York City. At last year’s CGI meeting, EARTH announced its Commitment to Action in the form of a feasibility study for an innovative Global Master’s program in Health and Sustainable Development, together with the American University of Beirut and The MasterCard Foundation.
Dr. Zaglul was invited to participate in a prestigious event entitled “Pitching for Partnerships” where he will present EARTH’s Commitment to Action before a panel of experts, with the goal of spreading awareness and identifying strategic partners for the program.
About the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI)
Established in 2005 by President Bill Clinton, the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI), an initiative of the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation, convenes global leaders to create and implement solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges. CGI Annual Meetings have brought together more than 150 heads of state, 20 Nobel Prize laureates, and hundreds of leading CEOs, heads of foundations and NGOs, major philanthropists, and members of the media. To date, members of the CGI community have made more than 2,900 Commitments to Action, which are already improving the lives of more than 430 million people in over 180 countries.
CGI also convenes CGI America, a meeting focused on collaborative solutions to economic recovery in the United States, and CGI University (CGI U), which brings together undergraduate and graduate students to address pressing challenges in their communities and around the world.
