We got accepted to CGIU! We're so honored and excited. I can't wait to meet fellow social innovators and exchange ideas with them.
According to the CGIU website,
Building on the successful model of the Clinton Global Initiative, which brings together world leaders to take action on global challenges, President Clinton launched the Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI U) in 2007 to engage the next generation of leaders on college campuses around the world.
Woohoo - we made into Big Ideas @ Berkeley!
According to the Big Ideas website,
Big Ideas@Berkeley is an annual contest aimed at providing funding, support, and encouragement to interdisciplinary teams of students who have “big ideas.” Since its founding in 2006, Big Ideas@ Berkeley has inspired innovative and high-impact student-led projects aimed at solving problems that matter to this generation. By encouraging novel proposals and then supporting concrete next steps, Big Ideas is helping contest winners make an impact all over the world.
We feel so thankful and lucky that our idea is picking up traction, and we may just get the support we need to see this through. What great news as I was studying for finals :)
