Well right now in mid town Manhattan the Clinton Global Initiative is meeting. Allegedly the last meeting in a while, at least if Hillary Clinton becomes President. At a time when Trump’s foundation is being discussed as a Slush Fund, this meeting on Global Prosperity, is worth looking at. The Clinton Foundation has a 4 star charity rating by Charity Watch. Here is what the meeting is all about this year:
“Global prosperity requires both equity and opportunity for all. In 2016, through the theme ‘Partnering for Global Prosperity,” CGI challenges its members to consider how they are building and maintaining global prosperity through creative cooperation. Throughout the year and at the Annual Meeting, CGI members will explore how to partner in new and unique ways to secure flourishing livelihoods for all, enable communities to thrive, and promote and increase environmental sustainability everywhere.”
Here is the conference livestream:
A comparison of the two foundation (Trump Clinton) we at TFN think is definitely in order. Here, without the networking sessions, lunches and awards, that seem all passionate discussions and deeply informative, are substantive issue based discussions that just went down at CGI this week:
Beyond Equality: Harnessing the Power of Girls & Women for Sustainable Development
Partnering for Global Prosperity
Succeeding in the World’s Toughest Places
What We Know Now: Applying Lessons Learned to Advance Haiti’s Future
Girl, Uninterrupted: Increasing Opportunity During Adolescence
Turning Landfills into Goldmines: Can We Make the Circular Economy a Reality?

We’ll be providing some video from the meeting as we get it.
