Geneva, Switzerland, January 14, 2022 - Two years since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, global leaders will convene for the World Economic Forum’s Davos Agenda 2022, from 17-21 January. This year, it will be the first global platform to provide an opportunity for crucial heads of state and government, together with chief executives and leaders from civil society and international organizations, to reflect on the “State of the World” and shape solutions for critical challenges in the year ahead.

Radically different pandemic experiences have exacerbated global divisions. Vaccine inequities, combined with new strains, have also slowed global economic recovery. However, as the Global Risks Report 2022 clarifies, COVID-19 is only one of the critical global challenges that may become unmanageable unless world leaders prioritize proactive collaboration. Accordingly, the Davos Agenda will drive concerted action among key international stakeholders.

Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum, said: “Everyone hopes that in 2022 the COVID-19 pandemic, and the crises that accompanied it, will finally begin to recede. But major global challenges await us, from climate change to rebuilding trust and social cohesion. To address them, leaders will need to adopt new models, look long term, renew cooperation and act systemically. The Davos Agenda 2022 is the starting point for the dialogue needed for global cooperation in 2022.”

Through Special Addresses and panels with leaders of G20 economies and international organizations, the Davos Agenda 2022 will provide crucial insights into a range of critical challenges. In addition, participants will hear first-hand how these leaders will drive action in these and other areas.

• World leaders delivering “State of the World” Special Addresses will include:

The Davos Agenda 2022 will also mobilize government and business leaders, international organizations, and civil society to share their outlook, insights, and plans on the most urgent global issues such as climate change, social contracts, and vaccine equity. These sessions will also provide a platform for a broader connection, enabling the international public to engage and get included in the conversation.

• Key sessions will include:
