Youth was represented in Davos 2019. A delegation from Millenials co-chaired the summit, including Noura Berrouba, Member of the European Youth Parliament.


If you are wondering why Davos this year was different, this is how: six young leaders, six millenials are co-chairing at Davos in 2019. We interviewed one of them, Noura Berrouba, she is the member of the Governing Body of the European Youth Parliament.

Sasha Vakulina, euronews:

"How does it feel, you are co-chairing Davos this year with other Millenials, this is so new for an event which has been so traditional?"

Noura Berrouba, member of the Governing Body of the European Youth Parliament:

"I really see this as a milestone. So, last year the World Economic Forum had an all female co-chair panel to highlight the gender disparaty at the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting and this year they are putting young people in charge. I think this is right not just because we are discussing the future of globalization and how we are gonna shape this global architecture but also because it sends an important message to people in the room that we have a right to have a say on this issues and if you want to take sustainable decisions on business, environment, or anything - you need to have young people in the room".
