Clinton Global Initiative

The inaugural meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative is planned for September 15-17th 2005 in New York. Per Mr. Clinton:

This event, which will bring together King Abdullah II, President Leonel Fernandez Reyna, President Olusegun Obasanjo, Prime Minister Tony Blair, Secretary General Kofi Annan, Vice Premier Shimon Peres, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dr. Hernando de Soto, Sonia Gandhi, Rupert Murdoch, Richard Parsons, and an array of other distinguished and dedicated leaders, will coincide with and complement this fall's Millennium Summit of the U.N. General Assembly.

This nonpartisan conference will concentrate a diverse and select group of current and former heads of state, business leaders, noteworthy academicians, and key NGO representatives to identify immediate and pragmatic solutions to some of the world's most pressing problems.

It's not clear why this blogger was invited to this event (!), but if we succeed in persuading our employer to step up for (even half) the registration fees, we will attend. If so, expect live-blogging from there.
