Bono will join World Bank Group President Jim Yong Kim in a conversation on how to end world poverty, drawing on ideas crowdsourced from social media.

For weeks, the World Bank has been asking their social audience this question: What will it take to end poverty? Participants have been sharing their views, their hopes, and their solutions to creating better lives, which you can read and join here. Or, tweet your idea with the hashtag #ittakes.
