As the world staggers away from a difficult 2020 marked by coronavirus and political unrest, the World Economic Forum (WEF) have proclaimed 2021 “A Crucial Year to Rebuild Trust”. It is under this theme that the Davos Agenda 2021 - a virtual event taking place from 25-29 January - will convene as world leaders meet to address the world’s most pressing problems. 

“In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, the need to reset priorities and the urgency to reform systems have been growing stronger around the world. Rebuilding trust and increasing global cooperation are crucial to fostering innovative and bold solutions to stem the pandemic and drive a robust recovery,” says Klaus Schwab, WEF’s Founder and Executive Chairman. 

Participants will explore five themes to develop bold and innovative solutions to fight the pandemic and drive robust recovery in 2021. These include designing sustainable and resilient economic systems, driving responsible industry transformation and growth, enhancing stewardship of global commons, harnessing the technology of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and advancing global and regional cooperation.
