DAVOS 2020 | Welcoming Remarks and Special Address ft. Klaus Schwab
- Unchecked capitalism has led to vast economic inequalities, irresponsible short-termism and a growing climate crisis. As we approach Davos 2020, how can we look to build a more equitable world for the future?
- What is Davos, and how can it help us tackle the world’s great problems? Featuring Greta Thunberg, David Attenborough, Bill Gates, Nelson Mandela, Helmut Kohl, Klaus Schwab, Winnie Byanyima, Al Gore, Rutger Bregman and Pedro Sánchez, we look at how the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum facilitates discussion around climate change, poverty, inequality, and global conflict.
The World Economic Forum is the International Organization for Public-Private Cooperation. The Forum engages the foremost political, business, cultural and other leaders of society to shape global, regional and industry agendas. 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.
