Spotlight on Davos: A preview

Global leaders are heading to Davos, Switzerland, for the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting—the first such in-person gathering since the start of the pandemic. #WEF22 arrives when the world is at the fulcrum of several simultaneous shifts: geopolitics, the energy transition, the macroeconomy, COVID-19, and technology are just a few. The meeting offers a collaborative environment to build problem-solving communities and initiatives, as these shifts become increasingly urgent and prominent. Learn more about McKinsey’s ongoing strategic partnership with the World Economic Forum, and dive deeper on the key topics at Davos:

  • Fostering global and regional cooperation
  • Securing the economic recovery and shaping a new era of growth
  • Building healthy and equitable societies
  • Safeguarding climate, food, and nature
  • Driving industry transformation
  • Harnessing the power of the Fourth Industrial Revolution
