The Clinton Global Initiative kicks off its 10th annual meeting in New York City around the theme of Reimagining Impact. It is the conclusion of a three part series that began in 2012 on Designing for Impact. This year’s theme guides members in better measuring and assessing outcomes of their work, and rethinking how we create value through new approaches to complex global challenges. Coinciding with the event, leading impact designers from MASS Design Group, IDEO.org, Frog Design, and Build Change, among others, will gather together with Autodesk Foundation to celebrate the design-led revolution and to further investment in the field of impact design.
From September 21-24, 2014, CGI members and the general public can also participate in three Designing Ideas Breakout Sessions. CGI organizers invite individuals to develop new ideas and approaches to specific challenges through a collaborative design process. Each session is focused on one question and will be streamed live to encourage online participation in real-time using a facilitator in the room. Sessions include:
How can smallholder farmers and fishers increase their economic opportunities?
Mon Sep 22 2pm – 3:30 pm EST
How can 2.5 billion people living without toilets gain access to sanitation?
Tues Sep 23 2:30 pm – 3:45 pm EST
How can communities prevent and resolve the double burden of malnutrition?
Wed Sep 24 1:30 pm – 3pm EST
