The Forum of Young Global Leaders, explained by David Aikman
Nov 1, 2007
Operating under the umbrella of the World Economic Forum – the Geneva-based organization founded by Klaus Schwab that has a high profile annual meeting in Davos – the Young Global Leaders group is described as
a unique, multi-stakeholder community of the world’s most extraordinary leaders who are 40 years old or younger and who are ready to dedicate a part of their time and energy to jointly work towards a better future.
Each year we identify 200-300 exceptional individuals, drawn from every region in the world and from a myriad of disciplines and sectors. Together, they form a powerful international community which can dramatically impact the global future.
As I get to know them (Disclosure: I am a member of the group) I have begun compiling videos and postings about the group and their often extraordinary stories.
So far, I have put up the following postings/videos (or check this link for the latest updates.)
