Amidst a political whirlwind of division, former US president Barack Obama is bringing together some of the greatest civic leaders in the world for a conference on how to make the world a better place.

In September, the Obama Foundation released a video statement on social media announcing that the foundation would be holding a leadership summit at the end of October.

“This October, we’re bringing together hundreds of leaders from all around the world for a hands-on exchange of ideas in my hometown – the city of Chicago,” said the former president in the video.

“This leadership summit will be a place to gather and learn from one another and then go back to your communities to lead others in the hard work of change.”

Additionally, the foundation is organizing its own fellowship for civic leaders, which will accommodate “a diverse set of community-minded rising stars – organizers, inventors, artists, entrepreneurs, journalists, and more – who are altering the civic engagement landscape.”
