In recent months, the World Economic Forum’s Young Global Leaders, Global Shapers, and New Champions have gathered in support of the Davos mission. Who exactly are these groups and what do they represent?
While the World Economic Forum’s Young Global Leaders program has become familiar to many people in recent months, equally important and influential programs such as the Global Shapers and New Champions are less well known. However, a look into these initiatives offers further insight into the plans of the World Economic Forum (WEF) and the globalist politicians who support them.
According to their official site, the Young Global Leaders is an “accelerator for a dynamic community of exceptional people with the vision, courage, and influence to drive positive change in the world”. The YGL claim to have more than 1,400 members and alumni from more than 120 nations. They say their membership is made up of business innovators, entrepreneurs, technology pioneers, educators, activists, artists, journalists, and more. Since they area a creation of the WEF, they also say they “seek to drive public-private co-operation in the global public interest”.
Unlimited Hangout investigator Johnny Vedmore recently released a must-read investigation into the YGL which definitively proves that Klaus Schwab’s mentor Henry Kissinger — wanted war criminal, former Secretary of State — was the mastermind behind the creation of the YGL initiative. The report also highlights the now obvious purpose of this and similar organizations. Vedmore writes:
“Klaus Schwab became the heir to Henry Kissinger’s most important project, the infiltration of individuals and organizations in countries around the world with the aim of creating globalist-aligned governments built within the framework of an outdated and soulless conceptualization of American imperialism.”
As Klaus Schwab himself has made perfectly clear, the role of the YGL is to “penetrate” the cabinets of national government to promote the vision of stakeholder capitalism and the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
The Young Global Leaders 2022 Gathering
Speaking in early September at the annual YGL gathering, Klaus Schwab acknowledged the role played by the WEF and YGLs.
“So I developed this concept and I became so fascinated that I decided to create the foundation and bring stakeholders together. So the idea of Davos was born,” Schwab said during the “State of the World Address”. “Since the beginning we assembled in Davos, not just business leaders or government leaders, but, probably the first big plea of people to take care of the environment was the Club of Rome exactly 50 years ago. And we gave the Club of Rome a platform to promote its ideas of “The Limits to Growth”.
Another investigation by Unlimited Hangout writer Matthew Ehret discusses the origins of the Club of Rome “landmark” 1972 report, The Limits to Growth. Ehret elaborates further on the connection between the WEF and the creation of the Club of Rome:
“Sir Alexander King and the computer model made famous in the 1972 Limits to Growth imposed a new schism between humanity’s desire to develop vs nature’s supposed desire to rest in mathematical equilibrium. This neo-Malthusian computer model was used to justify the culling of the unfit and overpopulated useless eaters and was subsequently incorporated into the third official World Economic Forum (WEF) meeting at Davos, where Aurelio Peccei was introduced by Klaus Schwab and showcased the Limits to Growth magic to thousands of supportive attendees.
This particular meeting was sponsored by Prince Bernhardt of the Netherlands, a man who had already distinguished himself among upper level managers of the empire by founding the infamous Bilderberg meetings in 1954 and, later, the World Wildlife Fund for Nature in 1961 (alongside Julian Huxley and Prince Philip Mountbatten). In addition to incorporating Club of Rome population models into cybernetics-based planning, this summit also featured the official unveiling of “the Davos Manifesto”, a document which formalized the concept of “Stakeholder Capitalism” and the fourth industrial revolution into the governing manifesto of this “Junior Bilderberger” annual summit.”
Sir Alexander King was also responsible for a follow up report released in 1991 titled “The First Global Revolution”. This controversial report includes a section called “The Common Enemy of Humanity is Man”, which contains this often-quoted section:
“In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. In their totality and in their interactions these phenomena doconstitute a common threat which demands the solidarity of all peoples. But in designating them as the enemy, we fall into the trap about which we have already warned, namely mistaking symptoms for causes. All these dangers are caused by human intervention and it is only through changed attitudes andbehaviour that they can be overcome. The real enemy, then, is humanity itself.“
Some readers have interpreted this statement to mean that the Club of Rome was acknowledging they would use the idea of pollution, global warming, water shortages, and famine to unite humanity behind the idea that humanity is the problem. The Club of Rome and their supporters claim this passage is taken out of context and simply represents their leadership recognizing geopolitical issues which would soon befall humanity.
During Klaus Schwab’s speech at the YGL annual gathering he discussed the role of the WEF and explained how the organization has been able to become an influential force in the last 50 years. Schwab also discussed the importance of indoctrinating the youth into his philosophy of a “multistakeholder approach”. Schwab went on to brag about the 200 plus “collaborative platforms” started by the WEF, the Centers for the Fourth Industrial Revolution in a dozen nations, and all the other various ways the WEF has “infiltrated” the governments of the world. He also noted the five different areas the WEF platforms are focused on, namely, regional and global collaboration, nature and climate, the new Social Contract, industry transformation, and the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR).
The 4IR is another pet project of Klaus Schwab which was first announced in December 2015. To put it simply, the 4IR is the digital panopticon of the future, where digital surveillance is omnipresent and humanity uses digital technology to alter our lives. Often associated with terms like the Internet of Things, the Internet of Bodies, the Internet of Humans, and the Internet of Senses, this world will be powered by 5G and 6G technology. Of course, for Schwab and other globalists, the 4IR also lends itself towards more central planning and top-down control. The goal is a track and trace society where all transactions are logged, every person has a digital ID that can be tracked, and social malcontents are locked out of society via social credit scores.
When asked what he believes the “key challenges” facing humanity are, Schwab stated:
“When we organized our annual meeting in May this year we chose the theme “History at a Turning Point”. We are really at a turning point. And I would say, you look back, we had the post-Cold War time, which lasted until 1989 with the fall of the wall. And now we go into the post-post Cold War time. We are at the end of a very significant period and we are in the transition of a new period. And like always, a transition is difficult.”
Schwab went on to describe the different forces he believes are shaping and influencing the world of the next five to seven years. These forces include a geopolitical realignment from a unipolar world to one with multipolar or even bipolar standards. Schwab said this would lead to a “multi-ideological world” that will be unstable. He also mentioned a “geoeconomic alignment”, a rearrangement of the supply chain, and an energy transformation involving decarbonization and energy security. Schwab described the transformation as a “costly process”. Finally, Schwab said he believed the “militarization of economies” and pandemics will shape the next few years.
“We come out of a pandemic and this pandemic was very costly, not only in financial terms, but psychologically. The question about the next pandemic is not about whether or not it will come – i think it will come – but about when we will face (it),” Schwab told the YGLs. “To develop resilience, we need to develop resilience against such pandemics. Again a very costly undertaking, you see it in China, with the closing down…. we are not out of the woods yet.”
Schwab’s mention of the need to be “resilient” against pandemics is odd in relation to his mention of China, where authoritarian lockdowns have plagued the Chinese people for almost 3 years. It’s not clear if his statements are meant to be an endorsement or a suggestion of a “necessary evil” on the way to resiliency.
Interestingly, Schwab mentions China again when discussing what he sees as the positive influences on the coming years. Specifically, he believes the so-called Fourth Industrial Revolution will bring about a positive change and “new capabilities”.
“Who could imagine his or her life without the internet?,” Schwab asked. “But the internet is only 20 years old. When we look at technological development I think we are at a tipping point. We are only now reaching the exponential phase of development.”
“When I had my discussion with (Chinese) Premiere Li Ko-chiang, two months ago, he mentioned that China alone now has 150 million well educated people. There is a tremendous force behind the Fourth Industrial Revolution. And this will change our lives.”
Finally, to hammer the point home, Schwab reiterates what exactly he means by the 4IR and what it will bring about.
“Let me summarize what this means. It means we will enter a period of tremendous acceleration of change, tremendous complexity and uncertainty. What I am worried most is, if you take the question, are we able to cope with change? and how do we cope with change? You see already governments not always understanding what new technologies mean, you see the effects on society with it becomes agitated because it cannot handle all the changes coming all the time.”
This statement appears to indicate an awareness that not only will this planned upheaval come with tremendous financial costs, but that it might cost so much that the people become agitated with the changes coming from the likes of the WEF.
The Global Shapers Community
The Young Global Leaders are not the only WEF program aimed at influencing the youth. The Global Shapers Community is a “network of young people driving dialogue, action and change” targeting those under 30. Founded in 2011 by Klaus Schwab, this organization focuses on “empowering young people” to play an active role in “shaping local, regional and global agendas”.
Members of the Global Shapers do this by forming “city-based hubs” where they are able to launch projects focused on advancing the goals of the WEF and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The WEF claims they have more than 15,000 Global Shapers in 500 city-based hubs in 150 countries and territories. These hubs are supported by “significant financial and in-kind contributions” from the WEF, including “staff time, technology tools and opportunities to interact and collaborate with its membership network”.
The hub leaders are invited to the Global Shapers Annual Summit in Geneva, Switzerland where they hobnob with other members, and take lessons in how to promulgate the WEF stakeholder philosophy and, whether consciously or unconsciously, The Great Reset agenda.
While the stated purpose of the Global Shapers is to “self-organize to create projects that address the needs of their community”, in reality they are unwittingly serving the goals of the Technocrats at the WEF. On the surface, the projects seem benign and even beneficial in some cases. They include disaster relief, fighting poverty, environmental initiatives, and efforts to build inclusive communities. These are projects that most people can get behind and for a young person seeking to pad their resume with community service, the Global Shapers Community sounds like a great match.
Unfortunately, the good work of these well-intentioned people from around the world is being harvested in an attempt to give the WEF and their ilk a veneer of legitimacy. These projects give the WEF something to point to when asked what exactly their organization is accomplishing. However, when looking at the 2022 Global Shapers Annual gathering, all of the topics discussed align perfectly with the aforementioned agendas of Klaus Schwab and the WEF.
Meet the New Champions
In mid-July, yet another WEF program held a gathering titled “New Champion Dialogues 2022” with the subtitle of “Navigating Uncertainty”. The “New Champions Dialogues” were a virtual gathering of business leaders, government, and civil society for “high-level dialogues and action-oriented discussions to move critical collaborations forward despite ongoing global uncertainty”.
The gathering was promoted as a virtual exchange focused on “international and domestic uncertainty and disruption”, and “extraordinary levels of entrepreneurship and resilience”, as well as climate change, economic instability, and technological innovation.
So, what exactly are the New Champions? The WEF describes them as follows:
“New Champion companies are dynamic high-growth companies that are championing new business models, emerging technologies, and sustainable growth strategies in the Fourth Industrial Revolution. New Champions are mindful of their impact on society and aspire to participate in building a better future.”
The WEF says the Annual Meeting of the New Champions is different than the annual gathering in Davos because it is “aimed at engaging entrepreneurs and innovators from emerging markets”. The New Champions meeting has been held in China since 2007 and is described as a “second pillar” among the WEF’s global meetings. The last in-person meeting of the New Champions was held in Dalian, China, in July 2019, prior to COVID-19.
The 2022 virtual gathering of the New Champions continued the focus on influencing entrepreneurs and businesses to align with the WEF Great Reset agenda. By working to influence entrepreneurs and corporations to adopt the various standards promoted by the WEF (ESG, for example) they are able to work around national governments.
The titles of the panels at the July 2022 gathering make it clear that the New Champions are serving the same purpose as the WEF annual meeting, the YGLs, and the Global Shapers. Titles for panels include “Adapting to Evolving ESG Requirements”, “Averting a Worldwide Food Crisis”, and “Energizing a Sustainable Transition”. For more information on the ESG scam read my previous investigations.
Another panel focused on the Metavese was titled “Innovation for Impact: Frontiers of the Metaverse”. As I previously reported in November 2021, the Metaverse has the potential to be a digital dystopia designed to lock the public in a technocratic nightmare.
Meanwhile, the Unlocking the Power of Nature Financing furthered the WEF’s vision of a “nature-based economy” through something they call “nature financing”. This panel highlighted a recent Five-Year Plan by China focused on allocating massive financial resources to fund “ecological protection and restoration”. As with all WEF programs, I recommend taking this greenwashing language with a huge grain of salt.
Overall, like the Young Global Leaders program, the Global Shapers and New Champions represent another piece of the globalist octopus which has become quite effective at penetrating and manipulating world governments.
