Millennium Campus Conference 2010 is...
A student movement. Over one billion people worldwide suffer from the effects of living on less than one dollar a day, including hunger, treatable infectious diseases, severely limited education opportunities and high child mortality rates. For the first time in recorded history, our generation has the tools to confront the vast majority of these problems. Will you be part of the solution?
Millennium Campus Conference (MCC) 2010 will bring together 1,000 driven students to discuss this generationís commitment to sustainable international development September 17-19 at Columbia University. As an attendee, you will have the opportunity to:
