World Leaders Climb Kilimanjaro


This is a brilliant idea put together by Outward Bound. They are bringing together world leaders, from all parts of the world, to climb Kilimanjaro together, facing the hardships and challenges of climbing the highest mountain in Africa – learning to cooperate, work together and overcome a huge feat. The idea is great and should be mandatory for anyone holding a position of power, but if Outward Bound could get more “opposing” world leaders in troubled spots around the world, it would be even better.

If we could get George Bush, Tony Blair, Hugo Chavez, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Fidel Castro, Kim Jong il, Moshe Katsav all together climbing up a mountain for a week, the world could be a much better place, don’t you think?
