Join the fight against extreme poverty

It’s been a busy few days for Bill Gates. After presenting Living Proof yesterday in Brussels, he is today in London for the launch of his Annual Letter, which he will discuss with an audience of students and international development experts.

The live online event, hosted by our friends at the Global Poverty Project, marks the launch of its Global Poverty Ambassadors Initiative, which invites people from all walks of life to engage their communities in the campaign against extreme poverty.

Hosted by the London School of Economics (LSE), Bill Gates will cover the key themes of his 2012 Annual Letter, including how innovations in agriculture and health are driving down extreme poverty worldwide. He will be joined by renowned Swedish statistician and advisor to the Global Poverty Project, Hans Rosling.

Elisha London, UK Director of the Global Poverty Project said:

“We are thrilled that Bill Gates has chosen the launch of the Global Poverty Ambassadors to deliver his annual letter. His vision and commitment is an inspiration for these Ambassadors who will mobilise their own communities in the fight to end extreme poverty”.

You can watch the event live at 13.30 GMT / 14.30 CET on the Global Poverty Project website and follow the conversation and tweet questions to #BillsLetter
