World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2012

Davos-Klosters, Switzerland 25-29 January
The Great Transformation: Shaping New Models

The World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos has wrapped up. It has been as ever, a cornucopia of intellectual fare, with some 260 sessions on everything from the Secrets of the Universe to Fixing Capitalism, and a cast of the world's intellectual, business, arts, cultural and social giants. It has been a week of superlatives, the most participants, sessions, snow, media coverage... you name a record and we have broken it. 

In short, The outlook, after a week of intense discussion, is of a troubled world pressed for solutions across a number of fronts, but with optimism provided by human ingenuity and progress. Rather than attempt to summarise or curate, we direct you to the full library of content, videos, summaries, tweets, quotes, blog posts and highlights. Enjoy.
