Over 2500 participants, including nearly 50 heads of state, will converge on Davos for the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting 2016 to discuss and take action on the critical issues shaping our future. Among them will be the delegation of Schwab Foundation Social Entrepreneurs, outstanding entrepreneurs from all corners of the globe who are pioneering market-based, scalable solutions to some of the most complex problems we facing.

Social Entrepreneurs in Davos are contributing their views and expertise to over 20 Annual Meeting panel sessions and workshops and actively participating in dozens of private sessions alongside top business and government leaders. We need the voices, perspectives, and experiences of these leaders from the frontlines to inform the debate, challenge conventional thinking, and come up with concrete responses.

As Middle Eastern and European countries grapple with the refugee crisis, how can we ground our discussions about appropriate policy responses in the experiences of those working with displaced persons and migrants every day, such as Pierre Issa of arcenciel who is providing support services in the Syrian refugee camps in Lebanon and Ramazan Salman of Ethno-Medizinisches Zentrum who is facilitating the integration of Syrian refugees in Germany?
