The World Economic Forum (WEF) will have a unique twin summit in January 2021 with the theme ‘The Great Reset’ to bring together global leaders from the government, business and civil society from around the world to discuss how to evolve an economic model with climate change at the heart of it.

“We only have one planet and we know that climate change could be the next global disaster with even more dramatic consequences for humankind. We have to decarbonise the economy in the short window still remaining and bring our thinking and behaviour once more into harmony with nature,” said Klaus Schwab, founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum.

This innovative summit will be a very different annual meeting, reflecting the spirit of the Great Reset. It will provide a unique opportunity at the beginning of 2021 to bring together the key global government and business leaders in Davos, yet framed within a global multi-stakeholder summmit driven by the younger generation to ensure that the Great Reset dialogue pushes beyind the boundaries of traditional thinking and is truly forward-oriented, the WEF said.

“If there is one critical leasson to learn from this crisis, it is that we need to put nature at the heart of how we operate. We simply can’t waste more time,” said Charles, the prince of Wales.
