A total of 40 cities from all over the world will be connected to Davos to host a global conversation on an issue related to the theme of the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting 2015 in Davos-Klosters.
Global Shapers Kathmandu Hub is organising a local event and a session that will connect with Davos on the theme “Building trust in Public-Private Partnerships”, says Global Shapers Kathmandu Hub in a press statement on Sunday, January 11, 2015.
The Global Shapers Hub of Kathmandu has been selected as 40 out of 402 global hubs to host a Shaping Davos panel discussion.
The event is an important opportunity to share local knowledge and perspectives, enabling people around the world to learn from Nepal’s experiences and also to respect and appreciate our perspectives, according to the statement.
The Shaping Davos event is being organised by the Global Shapers, to enable local solutions for global issues.
The Global Shapers Kathmandu Hub will contribute to the event in two main ways -- a Local Activity on January 14 and a Main Activity - Davos Broadcast - on January 19.
The local activity will feature a panel discussion with a diverse range of national experts from the pubic and private sectors as panelists.
The event will bring communities together on the theme Building trust in Public-Private Partnerships, an issue of global importance, and ensure that local voices have the opportunity to move a global conversation forward.
The main activity, Shaping Davos LIVE will provide viewers around the world with an unique opportunity to access the highlights from the panel discussion.
One of the panelists from the local activity will represent the Kathmandu Hub to connect LIVE to the Shaping Davos studio event.
The panelist will communicate local perspectives, and provide clear, synthesized and insightful contributions relevant to the topic being discussed during the Shaping Davos session.
