WOW WOW Clinton
I have only 3 words to say about the Clinton Global Initiative (video):
I loved It
Its very hard to understand charity when you are from a country like Denmark – where charity is build into the tax you pay. I never talked about charity at the dinner table in Denmark – we always talk about the welfare system (the full package thing). But this CGI has been an amazing way to learn about all this – and to learn about the PRIVATE SECTOR CAN REALLY DO BIG STUFF. The examples of the numbers from the conference speak for themselves – here is a few:
8.5 million out-of-school children will be enabled to enroll in school for the first time.
50 million people will have access to treatment of neglected tropical diseases.
170,031,331 acres of forest will be protected or restored.
11.2 million people will be empowered with increased access to sustainable incomes
But I must say that Im neither rich enough or smart enough by now to do really big things. Im really afraid of doing like quite a few i met at the conference – buy the wrong equipement for the new hobby …
