Meet the youngest Indian delegate at World Economic Forum in Davos
The youngest delegate from India, Karanvir Singh, will represent the voice of youth at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos. Karanvir Singh is Chairman of Visionum group. He is one of the four Indians selected by The WEF to represent the voice of youth at the forthcoming annual meeting at Davos in Switzerland. The others include Kanika Kumar, associate vice-president at Intellecap; Dipika Prasad, co-founder Lakeer; Jaideep Bansal, Leader, Energy Access, Global Himalayan Expedition.
The theme of this year's meeting is 'Creating a Shared Future in a Fractured World,' expressing the need to develop a shared narrative to improve the state of the world.
Fifty Global Shapers from 376 hubs based in 156 countries are selected to represent the youth voice at Davos each year.
These Shapers come armed with specific agendas to give youth the voice at Davos and to be an integral part of the dialogue that takes place at the Magic Mountain. The Forum provides them with a platform to make their opinions heard, with multiple speaking roles on panels over the four days of the meeting.
At Davos, the Global Shapers share and discuss the insights compiled from the Global Shapers Survey, which questioned over 31,000 young people in 2017, and prompted many world leaders to say how surprised they were at some of the results.
