Keeping up with the WEF

Published: December 27, 2022 | Print Friendly and PDF

Get your tickets now (snark) for DAVOS 2023, held January 16-20, 2023. The event is fast approaching!

The topic for this year’s event:

The title and description of Davos 2023, describe an organization under pressure. Let’s take the win. I think we are making an impact…

Of interest is that the WEF no longer lists Twitter on their Social Media list of accounts to follow. How far the mighty have fallen (or risen, depending on your point of view).

Watch out for the whiplash (no pun intended). Of course, what is fascinating about that this little tidbit of a news story of the great un-following is how Elon Musk was recently the Davos darling, the Diva, the debutante of the Davos Ball, until he wasn’t. One can’t hardly keep up.

One wonders if Mr. Musk even received an invitation this year?

On the agenda website, the WEF lists a couple of highlights from historic WEF meetings. On interest is that the WEF takes credit for founding the G20 and for launching GAVI.

The idea of setting up a new global institution comprising both developed and emerging economies was born in Davos in 1998. The group, which met for the first time in June of that year, became known as the G20.

In 2000, the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI) was launched, and has since been improving access to new and under-used vaccines for millions of the most vulnerable children globally.

Inquiring minds want to know, who is organizing the winter Davos 2023 “party”:
