By Srimal Fernando, Global Editor 
 
Former President Bill Clinton and Chelsea Clinton opened the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) Annual Meeting on 27th  September 2015 in New York City.

The Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) annual meeting brought together more than 1,000 world leaders from the philanthropic, business, and government sectors, who have created Commitments to Action that tackle issues like education, poverty, the environment, health and girls and women’s empowerment.

The Meeting will be held from September 26 to 29.

The CGI  annual  meeting  will focus on the Economic Implications of Gender-Based Violence, The Future of Impact, Escalators of Opportunity Unleashing Women's Economic Opportunities on these major themes.
 
“Ten years ago, I had this idea that we might be able to create a new community—built around the realities of the modern world—where problem-solving requires government, the private sector, and civil society to work together,” said President Clinton.

Former President Clinton announced the premiere of a groundbreaking virtual reality film, “Inside Impact: East Africa,” during the opening session of the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) Annual Meeting. The eight-minute film allows people anywhere to join President Clinton and Chelsea Clinton on their trip to see first-hand how Commitments to Action made by CGI members are changing lives and empowering communities.

The film, set in East Africa in spring 2015, lets viewers experience communities otherwise inaccessible to most –– from modern downtown Nairobi to Kibera, the largest slum in Africa.

Valentino Achak Deng, Co-Founder and Director, VAD Foundation, Minister of Education, Northern Bahr el Ghazal, South Sudan, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia, Fiona Adshead, Chief Wellbeing and Public Health Officer, Bupa Anu Madgavkar, Senior Fellow, McKinsey Global Institute, McKinsey & Company, Judith Rodin, President, The Rockefeller Foundation are some high-level speakers at the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) Annual Meeting.
