Davos to the world:
Mayor of Davos
“Davos is host, expert and supporter of many events that shape our world today, be it congresses, research, sport, or culture. Perhaps the best-known event that has helped shape the “Spirit of Davos” is the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum.
We are delighted that a new event will be taking place in Davos starting in 2023: the World Child Forum. The upcoming WCF sees itself as a platform that wants to make all future issues of children and young people, and therefore also of adults, visible. It wants to make connections and open up new paths. Because it is the natural impulses and surprising ideas of young people that enable unexpected new solutions with enormous potential. And we need those fresh ideas more than ever. With this format, it is not that we are helping the children and young people – but they are helping us to deal with the complex issues, problems and tasks of our time. We need their support to cope with the complexities of the future.”
