WEF will convene the Davos Dialogues from 26 to 29 January, within the context of the “Great Reset Dialogues”, a new series of Special Dialogues to discuss and determine a post-Covid-19 socio-economic order.

According to the Presidency, the discussions will focus particularly on how the global community can reset priorities and reform systems as a response to the emerging global threats resulting from climate change and extreme weather events; trade wars and protectionism; large-scale cyber-attacks, and the breakdown of critical IT infrastructure and networks; increasing inequalities and the emergence of a fractured multipolar and multi-conceptual world.
