3 Voices from Davos 2008

Every year, global leaders attend the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, to discuss how to better the world.

Van Jones of Green For All USA talks about lifting people out of poverty and building a sustainable, green economy by connecting people who need work with the work that needs to be done. www.greenforall.org

John Hope Bryant, founder of Project HOPE, answers The Davos Question, remiding that we are all entrepreuners and that the world’s leading entrepreuners were once poor. Bryant ties issues of financial illiteracy not only to the poor, but to the middle classes as well, as evident in the subprime crisis.

Dr. Arthur Mutambara, opposition leader from Zimbabwe’s Movement for Democratic Change, says the answer to The Davos Question is for global citizens to realize that our problems are interconnected. An injustice somewhere is an injustice everywhere.
