How to tackle the world’s toughest challenges? Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation invites you for a conversation this September


At the foundation, we are guided by the belief that everyone deserves a chance to lead a healthy and productive life, and we’re encouraged by the incredible progress toward achieving that goal. In their annual letter this year, Bill and Melinda shared a few of the stories that give them hope for the future – poverty has been cut in half, people are living longer and healthier lives than ever before.

While we know that progress is possible, it’s not inevitable. The stakes are high and particularly during this time of dramatic transition in global politics, many people, particularly young people, want to make sure we don’t go backwards.

That’s why this September we’re inviting people from around the world to join a frank conversation about tackling the world’s toughest challenges. We’ll be sharing stories of what’s working and what isn’t and revealing new and surprising data.

This is a first step toward building a community of thinkers, doers, and givers, the world’s goalkeepers, dedicated to tackling these challenges and making real progress against the Global Goals.

We want you to be the first to join us. Let us know that you’re interested, and we’ll share more ways you can get involved from home over the coming months.
