Summary

The World Economic Forum aims to stay relevant with its Forum of Young Global Leaders. Started in 2004, the annual Davos summit grooms 800 influential leaders in their 30s and 40s – including Chelsea Clinton and Y Combinator’s Sam Altman – to change the world for the better. Because participants were passive at first, the forum enlisted a group of artists, designers and data scientists to revamp the program as an “incubator for social enterprise.” The reforms helped social entrepreneurs Shaffi Mather from India and Eli Beer from Israel collaborate to create MUrgency, an international network of first responders who’ve answered more than 300,000 emergency calls within three years.
