The morning was devoted to the first initiative in the newly announced WTN GLOBAL CHALLENGES PROGRAM.

The 2013 challenge is: "End Global Hunger in a Decade"

Leading professional facilitators lead the assembled delegates through a process to develop truly fresh, innovative ideas about how to combat hunger. By definition most of the Summit delegates were not hunger experts. However, they were among the world's most innovative people. This grand "experiment" is to see what new ideas such people can come up with that might save millions of lives.
