Airmic Live - World Economic Forum Global Risks Report

8th February 2024 12:00 – 13:00

The World Economic Forum (WEF) released its 2024 Global Risks Report in January.

Misinformation and Disinformation have risen through the list of top risks over the two-year short term, in a watershed year packed with elections around the world that are being threatened by artificial intelligence-induced means.

This brings the risk of expanded social and political instability to a world already riven by the conflict.

Misinformation and Disinformation have not previously featured on the top ten list of risks in this annual report.

Airmic and its members have followed the WEF report closely over the years as one key source of indicators for the risks to expect in the upcoming year and beyond.

Richard Smith-Bingham, Executive Director of Marsh McLennan Advantage who was directly engaged in the production of the report, will explore the findings of the 2024 report.

By the end of the session, you will be able to:

  • Navigate the 2024 WEF Report.
  • Consider some of the most severe risks we may face over the next decade.
  • Explain the concepts of misinformation and disinformation and how these look set to further widen social and political divides.
  • Review what organisations can do in this challenging context.
