Annual World Economic Forum

22.01.14 - 25.01.14

The Reshaping of the World: Consequences for Society, Politics and Business, is the theme of the 2014 Annual World Economic Forum in Davos Switzerland.

Rapidly crossing geographic, gender and generational boundaries, they are shifting power from traditional hierarchies to networked hierarchies. Yet the international community remains focused on crisis rather than strategically driven in the face of the trends, drivers and opportunities pushing global, regional and industry transformation.

This year the TEEB for Business Coalition will  present a video that introduces the concept of natural capital and its values for business.
