Overview of actors

World Economic Forum

The World Economic Forum is the International Organization for Public-Private Cooperation.

The Forum engages the foremost political, business, cultural and other leaders of society to shape global, regional and industry agendas. Our activities are shaped by a unique institutional culture founded on the stakeholder theory, which asserts that an organization is accountable to all parts of society. The institution carefully blends and balances the best of many kinds of organizations, from both the public and private sectors, international organizations and academic institutions.

Focusing on the following sustainable development goals (SDGs)

Climate Action
Partnerships to achieve the Goals

How we work

With initiatives such as the "Global Redesign" and the "Great Reset", the WEF calls for a multistakeholder governance approach, to make global decisions not intergovernmentally but in "coalitions" with multinational corporations and civil society organisations.

The central event of the Forum is the meeting of more than 1000 member companies as well as politicians and representatives of science, non-governmental organisations, religion and the media every year in January or February in Davos.

... and why

Our aim is to improve the state of the world and promote entrepreneurship in the global public interest. We work at the highest levels with global leaders to empower public-private cooperation and seek solutions to some of the world’s complex challenges.
