CGI stands for the Clinton Global Initiative. President Clinton established this in '05 to gather world leaders to create and implement innovative solutions to our world's most pressing challenges. U2's lead singer, Bono, has been an outspoken activist for accomplishing many of these goals. He also has a good sense of humor.
