World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2017

Responsive and Responsible Leadership

17 – 20 January 2017
Davos-Klosters, Switzerland

We live in a fast-paced and interconnected world where innovative technologies, demographic shifts and political transformations have widespread economic and social consequences. With the rise of nativism and populism challenging national and regional systems across continents, leaders more than ever need to share insights and perspectives on how to navigate the future.

For over four decades, the World Economic Forum’s mission – bringing together business and government to improve the state of the world – has formed the foundation of the Annual Meeting programme.

In January 2017, the 47th Annual Meeting will focus on Responsive and Responsible Leadership. This mandate encourages leaders to implement creative, collective and credible actions to overcome discontent and enable sustainable and inclusive growth.
