Global Shapers Turin Hub participates in Davos Lab: Building Our Future, an initiative launched by the World Economic Forum which aims to mobilize a wide cross-section of the society to discuss how to build a more sustainable, fair and prosperous future for all.
The programme was announced in June 2020 by the founder of the WEF, Professor Klaus Schwab, who had analyzed the challenges of post-covid reconstruction in his book COVID-19: The Great Reset.

To facilitate this, the Global Shapers Community has developed Davos Lab as a platform connecting participants and providing them with appropriate tools and insights.
