Over the three days of the 2012 Annual Meeting, an array of heads of state, CEOs, non-profit leaders, and other global luminaries made over 150 new commitments, valued at more than $2 billion and expected to impact nearly 22 million lives. Members have now made nearly 2,300 commitments, which will improve the lives of over 400 million people in more than 180 countries.
“I am convinced that cooperation, not conflict, will define this century,” said President Clinton. “From the capitols of the world to the most remote villages, people everywhere understand that there are universal challenges which face us all and are beyond the power of any individual to solve alone. As the eighth CGI Annual Meeting draws to a close, I celebrate our members who have committed to working together to meet these challenges head on. Their creative and focused actions will help to bring about a stable, sustainable world in which all people have a chance to thrive.”
