The World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos-Klosters (Switzerland) 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.
For the 50th Annual Meeting (21-24 January), the Forum will focus its convening power, community engagement and platform capabilities to support global, regional and national initiatives that generate positive impact for all stakeholders. The programme, initiatives and projects of the meeting are focused on the theme “Stakeholders for a Cohesive and Sustainable World”. Content from #wef20 is split across 7 key areas:
- How to Save the Planet
- Society & Future of Work
- Tech for Good
- Fairer Economies
- Better Business
- Healthy Futures
- Beyond Geopolitics
Underpinning the meeting will be the Davos Manifesto 2020. This document builds on the original Davos Manifesto of 1973, which set out for the first time the stakeholder concept that businesses should serve the interests of all society rather than simply their shareholders. The Davos Manifesto 2020 provides a vision for stakeholder capitalism that touches on a range of important issues of our time, including fair taxation, zero tolerance for corruption, executive pay and respect for human rights.
