Forum 2019: World in EMotion

This year’s Forum will reflect on the fact that we are experiencing a great deal of social, economic and political change, upheaval and disruption, largely amplified by the dual forces of digitalisation and globalisation. People are still hurting from the worst economic, financial and social crisis of our lifetimes, and see no end to job uncertainty, high debt, weak pay packets, and widening inequalities. Anxiety about their situation is spilling over into politics, driving people apart rather than bringing us closer together. The Forum will explore ways to transform these increasing expressions of uncertainty and anger into collective commitment for positive action.

In 2019, the Forum will also celebrate its 20th anniversary, an opportunity to draw inspiration, from both past and present, for the future by reflecting on how a multistakeholder platform for dialogue can help bring about collective solutions to the economic, social, political and environmental challenges we all face today.
