World Economic Forum from 22-25 January

The World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos will focus its next annual meeting on increasing the involvement of people with disabilities. On the subject of disability, the WEF is planning, among other things, an exhibition with works by disabled people as well as discussions and workshops.

"As people live longer and chronic illnesses increase, most people will experience disability at some point in their lives," said WEF representative Daswani. "It is in everyone's interest to take care of people with disabilities".

The WEF expects more than 3000 participants in Davos, including top representatives from politics, business and civil society.
