VIDEO Bill Clinton touts global citizenship in wide-ranging speech at UC Berkeley

Former President Bill Clinton urged UC Berkeley students Wednesday to practice "communitarianism" by helping improve the lives of impoverished people around the world.

Speaking in front of more than 2,000 students and university employees in Zellerbach Auditorium, the 42nd president talked about global citizenship in his first speech on the Berkeley campus since 2002.

Barely glancing at the notes in front of him, Clinton touched on a wide range of topics: health care, education, sanitation, energy and climate change. He spoke at length about the importance of nongovernmental organizations, or NGOs, in changing the world.
