It’sYourWorld is a blog of the World Affairs Council and its project, the Global Philanthropy Forum. Here we will share with you some of the stories and insights that we are privileged to experience in our position at the nexus of policy and philanthropy. The Council and the Global Philanthropy Forum create a space where diverse audiences engage in dialogue that can inform their actions. Policy makers, business executives, philanthropists, academics, students, civic leaders and an attentive public join in the Council’s programs to listen, learn, discuss and debate – deepening understanding and finding solutions.
In this blog, we will be reporting from the Global Philanthropy Forum, the Aspen Institute, the Clinton Global Initiative, and from events here at the Council, in the news, and elsewhere. We hope that this will be an effective way to continue the engaged debate for which the Council was created, and that the stories shared, issues discussed, and challenges posed in this forum will inspire you to approach our global challenges with an open mind and enterprising spirit, for these are the characteristics that define our remarkable community.
