World Economic Forum 2020

The World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos-Klosters is the foremost creative force for engaging the world’s top leaders in collaborative activities to shape the global, regional and industry agendas at the beginning of each year. In this regard, the Forum’s mission – improving the state of the world – guides the design and development of the Annual Meeting objectives.

“Annual Meeting DAVOS 2020
21st January to 24th January 2020”

Davos, Switzerland

Participants will come together at the Annual Meeting to address the most pressing issues on the global agenda. They will do so in an exceptional atmosphere and in the “Spirit of Davos”, featuring interdisciplinary, informal and direct interaction among peers.

We believe that progress happens by bringing together people from all walks of life who have the drive and the influence to make positive change.

“We cannot solve the most pressing global challenges without unique partnerships between government, business and civil society,” Brende told participants.

Commending the tremendous outcomes of the meeting this year – from global initiatives to tackle plastic waste and mental-health drives to facilitate peace in countries besieged by conflict – Brende called for integrated global action to repair broken trust and uphold dignity for all.

Shaping a global architecture adapted to the pressing challenges of our time, said Brende, is crucial and can only be achieved “with all stakeholders at the table”.
