This honour, which is bestowed by the WEF each year, seeks to recognise the 200 most distinguished young leaders below the age of 40 from around the world. The honourees are chosen on their record of professional accomplishments, commitment to society and their potential to contribute to shaping the future of the world through their inspiring leadership.
