World Economic Forum (WT)

With this film we will enter the network of the World Economic Forum and observe several players over one year, how they take care of the major topics on their global agenda and face their own challenges: What could they set against the complexity of the new world order? And what role will Davos take in this?


World Economic Forum (WT)

The World Economic Forum in Davos is widely known as a yearly get-together of the worldwide economic and political elite. Hardly known, however, is the network behind it that spans the globe and pursues nothing less than a “global agenda”.

When the founder Klaus Schwab brought together this world elite in 1971 for the first time to discuss major global topics and ethical questions and to foster solutions for their own problems, nobody expected that this idea would live on like a fairy tale for soon 50 years: Schwab’s vision made history in Davos, under his auspices it became a place where wars ended and peace treaties were signed, under the slogan “Committed to improving the world” the pioneering spirit of the World Economic Forum put the topics of tomorrow on the agenda of today – from climate change to the 4th industrial revolution, the beginning of the digital age.

With this film we will enter the network of the World Economic Forum and observe several players over one year, how they take care of the major topics on their global agenda and face their own challenges: What could they set against the complexity of the new world order? And what role will Davos take in this?
