Can you think of a way to positively impact a billion people over the next ten years?

At the heart of the Singularity University graduate program that runs each summer is that each team must choose and develop one project that could have just that kind of impact.

My question to you, then, is: What can YOU come up with that could create positive change on that scale, and what would drive it?

    Apr 28 2011: Why not create a World Community Bank that will create resources and opportunities for economically disadvantaged people who are underserved by traditional financial institutions.

    This entity would help by creating jobs, providing financial services, supplying capital for small businesses, providing affordable housing and increasing community services.

    The goal is a sustainable society. Community investments can have a greater impact than donating to a specific charity.

    Sharing Interests and Spreading Wealth will provide the world an Abundance of Health.
