Why it's time for the 'middle powers' to step up on geopolitics

In a polarised world, with the most powerful nations and the UN unable to prevent or end many wars, could the so-called 'middle powers' step up? This week's two guests, both members of the World Economic Forum's Global Future Council on Geopolitics, think so, and say those countries might even consider setting up an 'M-10' of middle powers seeking to resolve conflicts and other problems. Guests: Susana Malcorra, Senior Advisor at Spain’s IE University and former Argentinian foreign minister and UN Secretary General Chief of Staff. Bruce Jones, Senior Fellow with The Brookings Institution Co-host: Nicolai Ruge, Lead, Geopolitics and Trade at the World Economic Forum.

It's cheaper to save the world than destroy it: author Akshat Rathi on Climate Capitalism

 • 26 minutes

“Climate Capitalism is an antidote to the dominant narrative that because we’ve ignored the climate crisis for so long, it will soon be too late. While it’s true that we’ve not done enough yet, we’re nowhere close to being too late.” So says Akshat Rathi, Bloomberg’s senior climate reporter and host of the podcast Zero, in his new book Climate Capitalism, which looks at ways business and industry and finance can make, and in some cases are making, real progress on climate change.

AI vs Art: Will AI rip the soul out of music, movies and art, or help express our humanity?

 • 40 minutes

For half a century, Nile Rodgers has been making hit records that have touched people's hearts around the world. The creative force behind disco pioneers Chic, and some of the best known songs of David Bowie, Madonna and Beyoncé, tells us the definition of an artist: someone whose work "speaks to the souls of a million strangers". But what if generative AI can make music that's just as good? Is AI a threat or a blessing to art and human expression? We also hear from the head of the Hollywood actors' union on why moviemakers went on strike over the threat posed by AI. And from Refik Anadol, a leading light in AI-generated art. Guests: Duncan Crabtree-Ireland, National Executive Director and Chief Negotiator of the actors’ union SAG-AFTRA Refik Anadol, Media Artist and Director, Refik Anadol Studio Nile Rodgers, musician and founder of the We Are Family Foundation

 • 37 minutes

Theatre director Jude Kelly founded the Women of the World (WOW) Festival almost two decades ago to spur conversations about women, men and feminism. WOW is now a global phenomenon, but does the rise of online misogyny pose a threat to progress on gender equality? Jude Kelly, who spoke to Radio Davos on World Women's Day 2024, says why it is vital to include men in the conversations about an issue that affects us all.

Geopolitics, the equitable transition, and AI: things to look out for in energy in 2024

 • 27 minutes

A year ago in Davos, energy - particularly the disruption to supply and prices caused by the war in Ukraine - was a top issue at the Forum's Annual Meeting and on Radio Davos we invited two experts in to set out the top lines of the energy discussion. Roberto Bocca, who heads up energy at the World Economic Forum, and John Defterios, a business professor and former CNN journalist, return this year, as war is an even bigger issue. They also discuss the 'energy transition', especially how that might look in the global South, and they address what was the top issue at this year's Davos: artificial intelligence - which many people believe could play a central role in the energy transition, but which is also itself creating a surge in demand for energy to power all the compute needed to create AI.
