What is the World Economic Forum?
The World Economic Forum engages the foremost political, business and other leaders of society to shape global, regional and industry agendas. It believes that progress happens by bringing together people from all walks of life who have the drive and the influence to make positive change. The Forum hosts an annual invitation-only meeting in Davos-Klosters, Switzerland, convening governments, international organizations, business, civil society, media, leading experts and youth from all over the world in more than 400 working sessions to discuss how to cooperate on the global, regional and industry challenges ahead. It engages over 100 governments and 1,000 companies at the highest leadership levels.
In 2017 Yves Moury received the “Social Entrepreneur of the Year” award from Schwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship, which grants him the honor of participating in the Forum.
