Welcome to the Davos Agenda 2021. Join Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum, in welcoming participants, with special remarks by Guy Parmelin, President of the Swiss Confederation.
Immediately after the welcome message, Hilde Schwab, Chair of the World Arts Forum, and photographer Platon will host the 27th Crystal Awards honouring exceptional artists and cultural leaders.
This session will close with the world premiere of “See Me: A Global Concert”, a shared expression of trust, connection and hope. This unique cinematic journey features orchestras and choirs in Beijing, Drakensberg, Florence, Kabul, Philadelphia, Vienna and São Paulo, with the cellist Yo-Yo Ma and Music Director Marin Alsop. The concert was filmed on location despite the challenges of COVID-19 and was made possible with major support from Intesa Sanpaolo.
