Global Changemakers Descend on the World Economic Forum

الثلاثاء 12 أيار 2009

This year’s World Economic Forum has the potential to be one of the most exciting in years. The economic crisis, renewed peace talks between Israel and the Arab World, and the growing importance of the environment will all be flashpoints and make for exciting conversation.

7iber has joined up with the Global Changemakers, an organization support by the British Council, to bring you extensive LIVE coverage of the World Economic Forum at the Dead Sea from 15-17 May 2009. Roughly 20 youth from around the Arab World will descend on Jordan for training, networking, and coverage of the debates, which will be published on global-changemakers.net and 7iber.com.

To stay in touch and interact, subscribe to our watwet channel. Will will also be using the Twitter hashtag #wef09 so you can follow live news from the Changemakers!
