Every year, the world’s top leaders in both public and private sectors gather in Davos-Klosters, with the aim of addressing the world’s most pressing issues in open, creative dialogue.
These conferences often run to a set theme, and in 2020, that theme will be Stakeholders for a Cohesive and Sustainable World. More than three thousand participants from all over the world will attend the event for panel discussions, presentations and open debate.
This year’s forum will attempt to define what we mean by ‘stakeholder capitalism’, and formulate solutions to assist governments and other international bodies in tracking their progress towards social, economic and environmental targets, such as the Paris Agreement.
Further important aspects expected to feature in discussions are technology, which advances ever further, and trade governance which, given recent trade disputes between America and China and thorny negotiations between the UK and Brussels, require solutions more urgently than ever.
In order to remain focussed while providing as broad a platform as possible, the conference will prioritise six main areas: Economy, Ecology, Technology, Society, Geopolitics & Industry.
Most, if not all, of these areas intersect in minor or major ways, which is why open, innovative debate is vital if long-term solutions are to be found.
In order to help facilitate this, TBD Media is returning to Davos for the second year for a series of interviews with prominent business leaders, providing a platform for those across various industries to present their perspectives and ideas on the world’s most pressing issues.
In partnership and syndication with some of the world’s leading media titles, we’ll take the stories of Davos international, facilitating conversations long beyond the end of this year’s event, throughout a year in which issues like sustainability, technology and geopolitics will continue to be at the forefront of the public consciousness.
After all, for progress to succeed, it’s vital for those in the public and private sectors to harmonise their efforts, and open, global platforms enable them to share the ideas and innovations that get us there.
