From the discussion on the community page we will generate a special Atlantic Memo that will be distributed to WEF organizers and to decision makers worldwide at the start of the conference. This is our way of offering the collective intelligence of the Atlantic Community to the WEF. We are looking for answers to two questions:
- "What will the climate regime look like?"
- "How do we stabilize the global economy?"
Articles on these two topics will be published throughout the focus week. Both topics are ones on which the WEF has taken lead positions in previous years, setting up task groups to deal with climate change topics as well as to find ways towards a financial system beyond that drawn up at Bretton Woods, resulting in the World Bank and the IMF. Visit the WEF website here.
All your comments written before the start of the actual forum on January 28 will be taken into account when we produce our Atlantic Memo, with a special focus on these two questions. We hope the discussion will be lively and welcome controversial positions and statements, as always.
And do not worry, the page will return to normal, step by step, after the Memo is published. If you want to give your comments on the Focus Week as such, feel free, and please let us know what you think. And if you have proposals for topics for future focus weeks, those are welcome as well!
