This year at Davos…






Love it or hate it, the annual World Economic Forum in Davos convenes a unique range of people who hold much power and influence. If you missed the coverage or found yourself drowning in too much of it, here’s a quick summary of the best bits.

The circular economy was on the agenda in a big way, with the announcement of the launch of Project MainStream.

There were calls for progressive businesses to stand up to those set on preserving the status quo, specifically food and beverage companies whose bottom line is threatened by extreme weather events.

Matt Damon, Kumi Naidoo, Paul Polman and Christiana Figueres all feature in our series of three minute soundbites reflecting on everything from deforestation to water access. You can listen to all our favourites here.
