Later this month (Jan. 22-25), business, political, academic and other leaders of the global society will gather in Davos-Klosters, Switzerland for the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting, The Reshaping of the World: Consequences for Society, Politics and Business.
It’s an important conversation that will be taking place, but not all of us can have a seat at the table. So, +SocialGood and the UN Foundation have coordinated a one-day global conversation and social media surge leading up to the event in Davos — and you’re invited!
You+Davos+SocialGood convenes tomorrow, Tuesday, January 14 to raise awareness, drive action and share best practices about the global agenda. It will be eight hours of digital conversation and creative action, consisting of 30-minute twitter chats, G+ Hangouts and Facebook chats allowing participants to offer concrete ideas about how we can collectively power global progress over the course of the next 15 years.
Another critical aspect of this conversation: how we can effectively support the next set of global developlement goals and create sustainable solutions by looking toward the world we want to see in 2030.
“A conversation this important needs everyone’s attention.” – +SocialGood

About the Annual Meeting
The Reshaping of the World: Consequences for Society, Politics and Business: Profound political, economic, social and, above all, technological forces are transforming our lives, communities and institutions. Rapidly crossing geographic, gender and generational boundaries, they are shifting power from traditional hierarchies to networked heterarchies. Yet the international community remains focused on crisis rather than strategically driven in the face of the trends, drivers and opportunities pushing global, regional and industry transformation.
