Should Business Lead the Social Agenda?

Friday 23 January at 18:30 to 20:00

Address: SAMD, Guggerbachstrasse 2, CH - 7270 Davos Platz

Complex global problems are often left for international organizations and government to solve. As a result, however, we have failed to meet challenges such as the Millennial Development Goals. Businesses play an increasingly important role in the global system, and face growing pressure from millennial consumers and employees to align core operations with social impact. Can businesses help to find a solution to global challenges, and should these challenges really be tackled by businesses?

  • Is business doing enough?
  • Can business solve social problems and make a profit? What models exist?
  • Do other stakeholder groups need to rethink their traditional roles?
