Roadtrip Nation Heads to CGI America with Chicago students!

June 13, 2013

As you’ve probably caught on by now, here at Roadtrip Nation, we live to meet innovative thinkers and hear their life stories. It’s the foundation of our ethos, our raison d’etre–and it makes us giddy with excitement! This week, our insight receptors are on extra high alert because we’re going to be attending the Clinton Global Initiative America (CGI America) meeting in Chicago! This event geared towards social innovation convenes some of the world’s most impactful leaders, and we’ll be taking Roadtrip Nation students with us to interview conference attendees!

 

Our camera crews will be trailing students and documenting their experiences as they engage in profound life discussions with leaders of industry, politics, NGOs, and beyond. When all is said and done, we’ll compile the interviews into a video piece to share with students and educators across the country! We can’t wait to share our learnings with you, so stay tuned!

 

Don’t forget: if you are on Twitter, follow us through the latest happenings in Chicago at @roadtripEDU and on the hashtag stream #CGIAmerica.
