the Clinton Global Initiative is taking place 23 to 26 September when Rania will apparently be in NY. Does anyone know if she is participating?

Little_star 09-15-2008 11:05 AM

She isn't mentioned in the "Featured Attendees" section, so it doesn't look like it.

Little_star 09-16-2008 05:32 AM

Looks like Rania will be at the CGI after all....

This year's attendees are expected to include, along with the two candidates, Queen Rania Al-Abdullah of Jordan, Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, Afghan President Hamid Karzai, and the presidents of Mexico, Rwanda, Libera, and other countries. Also expected: former Vice President Al Gore, oilman T. Boone Pickens, and Ukrainian oligarch Victor Pinchuk.

Rania is apparently participating in the opening plenary session at 10 am on the 24th along with Bono (her new best friend) and Bill Clinton and Lance Armstrong. this was on the CGI website

Humera 09-16-2008 11:38 AM

Queen Rania and Bono attended the CGI together in 2005, the year it was launched. She and King Abdullah skipped the event last year (when it also fell during Ramadan).

Not sure if we will get a schedule like other houses do but im pretty sure a few articles will mention dates & places if she will have activities which I am pretty sure she will have a few meetings, well I hope so :smile:

Little_star 09-16-2008 01:44 PM

Listed activities so far:
- CGI
- 2nd Annual World Savers Congress
- Awards ceremony organised by Synergos

Little_star 09-16-2008 01:45 PM

On September 23rd, Conde Nast Traveler will convene at the 2nd Annual World Savers Congress to celebrate the companies that are turning the travel industry's enormous potential to improve the planet into reality. Our goal is to recognize members of the travel industry who are already making the world a better place and to provide a forum for engaged discussion of the challenges ahead. I'm pleased that I will have at my side during the Congress the visionary economist Jeffrey Sachs, Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan, and Ashley Judd. I believe their words will serve to both educate and inspire us all.

Rowling's £1m helps party as her friend Sarah Brown takes stage

Mrs Brown, a mother of two sons and of a daughter who died shortly after birth, has been working with the charity the White Ribbon Alliance for Safe Motherhood. She will co-host a women's dinner in New York next week with Jordan's Queen Rania and Wendi Murdoch, wife of the newspaper mogul Rupert, signalling that she is developing an influential political role in her own right.

The story does not give a date for this dinner, but it might be on Thursday, the day the In My Name campaign is launched.

A lot of events crammed into a few days, sounds like a busy visit and it might finally give us an excuse to see some evening gowns on Queen Rania!
