Citizen Power: A Dispatch from Davos – World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2013

citizen.power.2

This year I had the pleasure to participate in the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting 2013 (aka Davos) as 1 of 50 Global Shapers.

I had several roles during the conference. One included serving as a panelist for the “Citizen Power – Leading Connected Societies” session, which featured Toshiba’s Chairman, Indonesia’s Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy, the United Way Worldwide’s CEO, the MIT Media Lab’s Director, and NHK’s Today Close-up Anchor.

A full version is below – I chime in around minutes 15:00, 22:40, 32:00, 38:30 and more…

I gave some big shout outs to Apps for Democracy, Civic Commons/Code for America, We The People, and Code for Europe.

This will be broadcast on Japan’s NHK network in February.

P.S. I wore a fancy new suit:
