Headed to Davos: 2010

Posted on January 22, 2010 Under Life


I’m off first thing tomorrow morning for a few days in London before I head on to Davos. This year is the 40th year the World Economic Forum has been convening world leaders and interesting people under one very snowy Swiss roof. It will be my third time to the event, and so far the past two have been drastically different from one another. They continue to be inspiring and stimulating though, and have provided both a good reception for my speaking engagements in the past (I’m speaking again this year), and fertile ground to explore new areas of interest I have.

As some of you know, last year I was nominated into a special group within the Forum called the Forum of Young Global Leaders. It has been an absolutely amazing experience (with meetings so far in Jordan, China and Dubai) and has given me an incredible opportunity to begin meeting other young worldly thinkers trying to make a difference in the world.

One such project we have been working on together just launched today, and I’m pleased to be able to share it with all of you. It’s called Redesign Our World. Essentially, it’s a place to show off many of the incredible initiatives YGL’s have been dreaming up and working on, and solicit new ideas from people around the globe.

With the help of some friends, we managed to get a site up in time for Davos so the internal Davos community and world at large could see, comment and engage with what we’re working on. I hope you’ll take a look and leave a comment or endorsement if you see something you like.

As usual I’ll do my best to blog throughout my travels– but following me on Twitter is usually a better way to see what I’m up to, hearing, seeing and thinking.

Thanks for reading…
