Austin, TX (PRWEB) September 24, 2008
The Nobelity Project (http://www.nobelity.org) is honored to announce its invitation to participate in The Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) September 23-26, 2008 in New York City. President Clinton founded CGI in 2005. This non-partisan conference was designed to convene the most influential leaders to discuss the world's most pressing global issues and to turn innovative ideas into solutions.
"Whether you're a business leader such as Warren Buffett, a Nobel laureate like Desmond Tutu, a corporation such as Google, or a nonprofit like The Nobelity Project, as a CGI member you are making a substantial commitment to take concrete, measurable steps to improve and save lives around the world," said Turk Pipkin, Founder of the Nobelity Project.
The Nobelity Project's commitment to CGI is to reach one million middle and high school students in 2009 through a dramatic expansion of the Nobelity in Schools program. Through their commitment to knowledge and change, the Nobelity Project will donate a double DVD package, classroom materials and a web-based Circle of Learning program to every teacher who wants to engage students in the issues that will shape their futures. The core message to these students is that each one of them can make a difference in the world and contribute to positive change.
In March, 2009, The Nobelity Project will release One Peace at a Time, a follow up to their documentary Nobelity, which provides a deeper focus on the solutions to global problems. Filmed in 20 countries on five continents, the goal of the film is to create a roadmap to a better future. Pipkin's latest journey explores the possibility of guaranteeing fundamental rights to every child on earth. The film chronicles specific solutions related to water, nutrition, education, health care and economic opportunity. Technology and science play a significant role in these solutions, as does the active role of individuals and communities.
The Nobelity Project's work is supported by individuals, businesses, corporations and foundations who share our concerns about the world we are leaving for future generations. "Membership in CGI is going to be a big boost to our education work, but reaching a million students is going to be one of our biggest financial hurdles to date," Pipkin explained. "AMD and the 50x15 Foundation have already come on board as the first sponsor, but we need to raise that money sooner, not later."
