Thanks to all the wonderful speakers and students who came to
We Are The World Conference 2013. See you all next year!
WE ARE THE WORLD CONFERENCE ON ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
'We Are The World' is a conference on Economic Development being organized by Borderless World Volunteers (McGill) to explore the various challenges that developing countries around the world will face over the next two decades. Because the economic development of a country extends far beyond the overall GDP of the country, we aim to explore aspects of development such as microfinance, health, and sustainable agriculture. We believe that the problem of underdevelopment is too vast to be understood, explained and solved by academic theories, student outreach and activism, or development and aid organizations alone. The conference will thus see speakers from different backgrounds – academics and entrepreneurs - share their research, experiences, stories, ideas, and vision with the specific aim of stimulating conversation among the attendees about these challenges. The conference was first initiated in 2011 and is currently in its second year running.
