21C Media Group has collaborated on several projects with the World Economic Forum, an international institution committed to improving the state of the world through public-private partnership. In 2005, the Forum asked for assistance in selecting participants and developing panel topics for its Cultural Leadership program, and for support for the Cultural Leaders during its annual meetings. Five years later, 21C also helped to create a 40th-anniversary concert at Carnegie Hall, to honor the Young Global Leaders program. This presented Joshua Bell, Julian Rachlin, and other members of the program performing under Valery Gergiev’s leadership, while pre-concert panel discussions featured remarks from WEF Executive Chairman Professor Klaus Schwab, James Wolfensohn, Deborah Borda, and other distinguished speakers.
