No country, no group of people, no one in today’s world can solve global issues on their own. With these words, the founder of the World Economic Forum, Klaus Schwab, set out the programme of this year’s meeting in Davos to the three thousand people attending. This also reflects the official title of this year’s forum: Creating a Shared Future in a Fractured World.

The forum clearly addresses the real needs of a multipolar, multiconceptual, mutually dependent, complex and rapidly shifting world. The Davos agenda is full of current topics, and in discussions and encounters in the corridors the most influential figures from all over the world are focusing the greatest attention on commitments to improving the state of the world.

Also participating in the Davos forum was Slovenian Prime Minister Miro Cerar, who took part in a panel looking at the issue of the circular economy, where he presented the achievements so far and Slovenia’s plans in this area. Slovenia is one of the countries that have placed the transition to a circular economy among their strategic priorities. In cooperation with the Netherlands, Finland and Luxembourg, Slovenia is preparing an initiative through which it seeks to promote the design of the next European financial perspective in a direction that will support the transition to a circular economy, with the aim of ensuring the UN agenda for sustainable development. In the words of Prime Minister Cerar, Slovenia aims to become a green reference country in a digital Europe, and a regional leader in the area of systemic transition to a circular economy.
