USAID Launches an Online Platform for ‘Change-The-World Ideas’

USAID is launching a three-day online event called ‘Global Pulse 2010’, that aims to bring people together to brainstorm ideas in solving current global challenges. The website will launch March 29th and this year’s primary focuses include issues of female empowerment, environmental sustainability, building partnerships, use of technology, and promotion of global health.

Ideas and suggestions are open to everyone. The goal for USAID is to both receive feedback on how they can be conducting things better, but also to connect organization and influential individuals on their quest to improve current global conditions.
