Your Window to Davos

By Steve Grove

Head of News and Politics

Over the last few months, thousands of you joined the Davos Debates at, and answered the four big questions the World Economic Forum posed to the YouTube community:

• Economy: Are you confident that global growth will be restored in 2009?

• Ethics: Should company executives have a code of ethics similar to doctors and lawyers?

• Environment: Will the environment lose out to the economy in 2009?

• Politics: Will the Obama Administration improve the state of the world in 2009?

Today on our homepage, we're featuring four mash-ups of your responses to the questions above, in addition to some of the videos submitted by those in attendance at the Forum. You can hear Kofi Annan respond to a young girl in South Africa who asked about development on her continent; poet Pablo Coehlo talk about his view of corporate ethics; or Prime Ministers from South Korea and Turkey speak to their citizens back home.

The mash-ups of your responses to the Davos Debates are being broadcast on a giant screen at the major plenary sessions here in Davos, bringing real-world context to the issues being discussed and debated by participants. In other words, your voice is being heard loud and clear here at the World Economic Forum, so keep submitting your videos and watching the responses on the Davos Debates channel.
