Something for the weekend? Try Davos 26 – 28 January 2012

December 29, 2011

Despite this seeming a little previous, certainly less than seasonal in spirit, and struggling for direct relativity to matters Ukrainian, it is time to remind you readers that the Davos Open Forum will be upon us very shortly and tickets are available to the great unwashed and unenlightened masses such as you and I.

So if you are feeling rather melancholy once the festive season departs and fancy something different for the weekend, there is always the Davos Open Forum to consider.

This years programme is as follows:

Thursday 26 January 2012
12.20 – 12:30 Introducing the Open Forum
12.30 – 14.00 Responsible leadership in times of crisis?
19.00 – 20.30 “Touching the past”- The same but not the very same?

Friday 27 January 2012
12.30 – 14.00 A day without satellites?
15.30 – 17.00 Overcoming religious tensions in Europe
19.00 – 20.30 What about the 99%?

Saturday 28 January 2012
12.30 – 14.00 How to keep the water supply flowing
15.30 – 17:00 Multiculturalism has floundered. What next?

What better way to lift the melancholy hangover from the festive season than to be slapped rudely in the face by a series of regional and global challenges? – Indeed.  I hear you.  I can also think of many better ways as well.  Nevertheless policy nerds like me enjoy this kind of thing, so for the other policy nerds out there who read my ruminations, this post acts as a reminder.

Tomorrow back to matters Ukrainian!
