Youth lighting the future at Davos

Misk Global Forum at the World Economic Forum 2020

The World Economic Forum in Davos is the single most influential gathering of world leaders and business innovators on the planet – and we’ll be there to make sure the voice of young people is heard loud and clear.

There are 3.6 billion people under the age of 35, and for this new generation the world is changing faster than ever before. A brighter future is possible, but only if young people are able to lead the way.

That’s why we’re bringing together business leaders and young people throughout the World Economic Forum, with a series of high-level panel discussions around the theme “You Need Youth: Beacons to a Brighter Future”.

The sessions will be taking place in our special Misk Lighthouse space at the heart of Davos, which will also be hosting a series of projects and activations by young artists and business leaders.
