The World Economic Forum is launching the Summer Davos Debates online at Youku.com to provide the public with the opportunity to present ideas to world leaders at the Annual Meeting of the New Champions 2010 in Tianjin on 13-15 September.

The Forum is inviting two Chinese citizens to participate in what has become known as the “Summer Davos”. It is the first time the Forum is opening its meeting in China to ordinary citizens through video submission on Youku.com, the largest video site in China.

The theme of the 2010 Meeting is “Driving Growth through Sustainability”. The Forum wants to understand how Youku users would meet local, regional and global challenges. Among the key questions on the agenda at the Summer Davos are: How can we manage resources more efficiently? How can we increase energy efficiency? How can we lower carbon emissions? How can we rebuild basic infrastructure?

The creators of the two best videos submitted will have the opportunity to take part in the Annual Meeting of the New Champions in Tianjin all expenses paid, where they can participate in the event, interact with world leaders and represent the general public in dialogue.

The Davos Debates are designed to foster direct dialogue and discussion with the wider public on key issues affecting the planet. This is the first time that the World Economic Forum has opened its Meeting in China to video submissions from the general public. The videos have become an integral part of the debates at other Forum meetings.
