We Christians need to lead.


THE WORLD Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2008 closed today with a call by business, government and civil society leaders for a new brand of collaborative and innovative leadership to address the challenges of globalisation, particularly the pressing problems of conflict – especially in the Middle East, terrorism, climate change and water conservation.

“Globalisation is forcing changes in how people collaborate in a fundamental way,” said former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, a member of the foundation board of the World Economic Forum and one of the co-chairs of the Annual Meeting 2008, at the closing plenary session.

“Globalisation is not going to go away – the question is what kind of globalisation do we have,” said Daniel Yergin, chairman of Cambridge Energy Research Associates (CERA).
