Davos 2024: Who’s coming and what to expect

  • The 2024 Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum takes place from 15 – 19 January in Davos, Switzerland. The meeting convenes under the theme of Rebuilding Trust, accessible to the wider public with over 200 sessions livestreamed – the full programme is available here.
  • The meeting welcomes over 100 governments, all major international organizations and the Forum’s 1000 partner companies as well as civil society leaders, foremost experts, young changemakers, social entrepreneurs and the media.

Last year at Davos, the word ‘polycrisis‘ was on everybody’s lips as leaders deliberated the cascading and connected crises of the moment. Today, even as we turn our attention to new crises, the old ones persist.

“At a time when global challenges require urgent solutions, innovative public-private collaboration is necessary to convert ideas into action,” said Børge Brende, President, World Economic Forum. “The Forum provides the structure for developing research, alliances and frameworks that promote mission-driven cooperation throughout the year. Next week’s Annual Meeting will serve as an accelerator of that cooperation, deepening connections between leaders and between initiatives.”

So, the question for leaders at Davos 2024: Will the coming year be a period of ‘permacrisis’? Or will 2024 be a time for resolution, resilience and recovery?
