Last year at Davos, the word ‘polycrisis‘ was on everybody’s lips as leaders deliberated the cascading and connected crises of the moment. Today, even as we turn our attention to new crises, the old ones persist.
“At a time when global challenges require urgent solutions, innovative public-private collaboration is necessary to convert ideas into action. The Forum provides the structure for developing research, alliances and frameworks that promote mission-driven cooperation throughout the year,” said Børge Brende, President, World Economic Forum.
More than 300 public figures will participate this year, including more than 60 heads of state and government. There will be strong representation from all key regions of the world.
An estimated 1,600 business leaders, including 800-plus of the world’s top CEOs and chairs from the World Economic Forum’s Members and Partners, will participate. There will also be more than 150 Global Innovators, Tech Pioneers and Unicorns who are transforming industries.
More than 200 members of the Forum’s Global Shapers, Young Global Leaders and Social Entrepreneurs communities will join to showcase local innovations and solutions. Also taking part in the meeting will be more than 150 experts and heads of the world’s leading universities, research institutions and think tanks. More than 40 labour, nongovernment organization and religious leaders from civil society will take part as well.
