World Economic Forum And Millennials

Written by

The World Economic Forum was held in Davos, Switzerland from 17-20th January 2017. As soon as this major global event was announced and planned, the Millennials decided to step in and take over the show. The end result was participation by more than 50 young people at the Davos Forum.

Dealing with student loans, high rents, and unstable labor markets is a challenge every Millennial has to face. The challenge becomes greater if you consider the large number of Millennials who are dealing with a variety of disabilities.
