Following recent political developments in Europe, a more optimistic outlook for the future of Europe has emerged. To ensure that this positive development gains momentum and delivers on the expectations of society, stakeholders need to collectively address the underlying concerns, review current assumptions and develop a concept for a modern, future-oriented Europe in the context of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
The World Economic Forum New Concept for Europe initiative will provide concrete recommendations and ideas to be presented to decision-makers at the Annual Meeting 2018 in Davos-Klosters, Switzerland. Underscoring the intergenerational social contract that reinforces the unique spirit and success of Europe, the initiative will emphasize the voice of youth, expressing their vision for the future of Europe, accompanied by recommendations of how such aspirations can be collectively achieved. Youth Champions, comprised of the Global Shapers Community and youth associations, will work alongside the Europe Policy Group to drive a new narrative for the future of Europe.
