Don’t go to the gym, surf the web or leave office early today.
If you find a better way of INVESTING one hour of your time than by joining an enlightened conversation such as this, you must let me know. Join the conversation.

Fernando Henrique Cardoso, Former President, Federal Republic of Brazil
Bill Clinton, 42nd President of the United States
Bill Gates, Co-Chair, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation; Chairman of the Board, Microsoft
Hernando de Soto, President, Institute for Liberty and Democracy
What can you learn from this, about what you might do in the NGO world, as citizens of the world? We live in an interdependent world that is unequal, unstable and unsustainable. We should try to create an integrated world of equal opportunities, shared responsibilities and common membership.
1. Look for countries that welcome NGO’s as partners and try to partner with them, that way, your work lasts.
2. Change the system.
3. Innovate.
• Learn about pressing sources of inequity in the world which, through coordinated philanthropy can be solved.
• Find those things were we can have a measurable impact, were we can make a difference and then focus there.
• Build systems and capacity.
They’re not naïve but they’re passionate.
