World Economic Forum
The 38th World Economic Forum has made its way to the Swiss Alps, where climate change will be among the major issues. The world's most elite in business and politics will gather and discuss ways to improve the climate crisis while confronting their own carbon footprint.
The Forum's sessions include "Progress on Climate Change," featuring Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the Nobel Peace Prize-winning IPCC; and "Combining Solutions to Extreme Poverty and the Climate Crisis," a discussion between U2 frontman Bono and Nobel co-winner Al Gore. The difference between this year's forum and prior years is the effort to reduce the impact the forum itself will cause on the environment.
