Over this period the organization has grown immensely in its understanding of the needs for major economic and social transformation in society. Today’s post is a very thoughtful essay on these positive changes in WEF by the CEO of Mercy Corps, Neal Keny-Guyer.

When an idea is “legitimized” at Davos, it means there is already a critical mass of acceptance and action in diverse areas of the world.
