WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM
World Economic Forum
The World Economic Forum was established in 1971 as a non-profit, impartial, independent international institution for public-private cooperation.
The Forum strives in all its efforts to demonstrate entrepreneurship in the global public interest while upholding the highest standards of governance. The Forum engages the foremost political, business, cultural and other leaders of society to shape global, regional and industry agendas. It connects communities of leaders around global issues through high-level meetings, research, initiatives and digital networks.
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.
Moral and intellectual integrity is at the heart of everything it does while bringing together people from all walks of life who have the drive and the influence to make positive changes to propel progress.
