Every year, global leaders attend the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, to discuss how to better the world.
This year, you get to join them.
The Annual Meeting has begun, and world leaders have been gathering at the YouTube corner in the Congress Centre to view and respond to the videos many of you have submitted.
And its not too late to join The Davos Conversation. You can still submit a video answering The Davos Question:
“What one thing do you think that countries, companies or individuals must do to make the world a better place in 2008?”
Some of your videos will be screened at select plenary sessions (January 23-27). World leaders will continue to watch your videos and make responses of their own.
A few choice vids:
