Davos-Klosters, Switzerland 23-27 January
Resilient Dynamism

"To be resilient is to possess the ability to adapt to changing contexts, to withstand sudden shocks and to recover from them while still pursuing critical goals. The other new reality that we face is a prolonged global economic malaise, particularly in major economies experiencing economic austerity. Future growth in this new context requires dynamism – bold vision and even bolder action. Either attribute – resilience or dyanism – alone is insufficient as leadership in 2013 will require both, thus the theme of 'Resilient Dynamism'."
Professor Klaus Schwab

For over 40 years, the mission of the World Economic Forum – committed to improving the state of the world – has driven the design and development of the Annual Meeting programme. The Annual Meeting remains the foremost creative force for engaging leaders in collaborative activities focused on shaping the global, regional and industry agendas.

Today, we live in the most complex, interdependent and interconnected era in human history. We are increasingly confronted by major adaptive challenges as well as profound transformational opportunities. This new leadership context requires successful organizations to master strategic agility and to build risk resilience. More broadly, it requires fostering resilient dynamism in every sector of society. Consequently, “Resilient Dynamism” is the focus of the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2013, aiming to catalyse and facilitate global, regional and industry transformation as a trusted partner of our members and constituents.
