On Sunday, March 29th the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) is launching a 3-day online brainstorming discussion – GlobalPulse 2010 – to bring together socially-engaged participants and organizations throughout the world to discuss critical global issues. I hope to see some NCDDers participating!
USAID has partnered with the U.S. Departments of State, Commerce, Education, and Health and Human Services to design and implement the event
Global Pulse 2010 is part of President Obama’s outreach to the Muslim world as a result of his speech in Cairo last year.
You can participate and collaborate on 10 critical issues facing the global community in the fields such as science, technology, entrepreneurship and human development.
The goal is to connect, engage and enable collaboration among thousands of participants across the globe on today’s critical global issues. The results will be used to help inform US foreign assistance and diplomatic strategies based on the key themes that emerge.
How will the event work? Each of the 10 designated issues will be led by moderators — recognized thought leaders and subject matter experts in the related field of interest — who will guide the conversation by posting comments and replies in their assigned forums. These moderators will encourage participation, help to develop deeper thinking, and offer insight into the topic at hand.

Note: John Kamensky, Senior Fellow and Associate Partner at the IBM Center for The Business of Government, thought some NCDDers might be interested in an opportunity to participate in a unique global dialogue that is part of Obama’s outreach to the Muslim world as a result of his Cairo speech last year. Feel free to share this announcement with your own networks!
