Speaking to a packed auditorium at Oslo’s Folketeateret, Tuesday, she talked of how kids can help shape the future of the planet.

“Kids are often the secret Trojan Horse,” she told a sea of some 500 fair-haired delegates. “Better to be caught trying and fail than never tried at all,” added Ms Clinton.

The Clinton Foundation has involved student change-makers in the world’s most pressing issues through the Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI U) since 2007.

CGI U highlights solutions through its ‘Commitment to Action’ projects. One example is the ‘Pedal Forward’ initiative.

The non-profit organization uses low-cost bamboo-built bicycles as an instrument for change. It provides funds for program ‘Bicycles Against Poverty’, which helps low-income entrepreneurs in North Uganda.

Through the bicycles, it increases accessibility to critical resources.

It also gives allocations towards the Tumaini Fund. This fund supports widows and orphans of AIDS victims in northwest Tanzania.

Numbers are feared to be as high as 200,000 following the AIDS explosion in this area at the same time as the Rwanda and Burundi genocides.

The ZERO Emission Conference 2013 lasts from 5 to 6 November.
