The Global Poverty Project Presents 1.4 Billion Reasons : Inspirational event featuring 2012 Rhodes Scholar Other events...
1.4 Billion Reasons is a ground breaking and inspiring live multimedia presentation that sets out a roadmap for the end of extreme poverty. Developed in collaboration with experts including Hans Rosling (Gapminder Foundation), Jeffrey Sachs (Senior Advisor on Development to the UN) and Sakiko Fukuda Parr (Human Development Report), this 60 minute presentation serves as a powerful tool to communicate the complexity of extreme poverty, successes made to date, and how individuals can take collective and individual action in their own community.
