From the 21-24 January, the 50th Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum, held in Davos, focused on global initiatives to generate positive impact for all stakeholders in this Fourth Industrial Revolution.

This year’s theme was ‘Stakeholders for a Cohesive and Sustainable World’.

A large part of the Fourth Industrial Revolution’s conversation revolves around the impacts of climate change, the future of economy, technology, gender equality and diversity. The advancements made in this new chapter of human development are enabled by the rapid growth of the digital, physical and biological world. Four global issues were featured prominently on the agenda. The Annual Meeting brought together business executives, experts and policymakers to discuss these topics. The four issues are listed below, paired with our speakers who participated in these discussions.

1. Climate and Environment: Addressing these issues that are harming our ecology and economy

2. The Economy and its Sustainability Priorities: Transforming industries to achieve more sustainable and inclusive business models as new political, economic and societal priorities change trade and consumption patterns

3. The impact of Technology on Society: The Fourth Industrial Revolution and its impact on businesses 

4. Adapting to Demographic, Social and Technological trends: How education, employment and entrepreneurship have been reshaped 

Former Finnish Prime Minister Alexander Stubb described growing trade disputes and changes in international policy as “New World Chaos”. With society rapidly changing, Minouche Shafik, director of the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and former Deputy Governor of the Bank of England discussed the idea of fairness and a fair economy. 

Our speakers delivered insightful and vital information regarding these enormous promises of technology, the urgency of our climate issue and how humanity faces these challenges.
