An update from the World Economic Forum in Davos, February 2018

Further reinforcing the global appetite for MiVote and our rapidly growing reputation as a world leading movement, MiVote was invited to present at the world economic forum in Davos, Switzerland at the start of February.

The team of three, Hamish, Adam and Cyclone Charlie nailed their agendas - meetings with heads of state, business leaders, NGO executives and a world-wide announcement that MiVote has established chapters in India and Iowa (US), which was picked up by every major English language newspaper in India.

The biggest win, according to our intrepid travellers, was a seismic shift in the nature of the conversations about MiVote. Reports are that there were a few rock star moments where the team and the movement were recognised in the street - Perhaps best illustrated by a head of state who said: “Lovely to meet you Adam. I was on your website last week!” It’s an interesting situation where media in your home country is relatively nonplussed with what you’re doing, yet world leaders are keen to discuss how the MiVote model can be implemented at a national level.

MiVote has arrived

Throughout the conference it was noticeable that government officials and key global players were seeking our MiVote representatives out (especially after their panel conversations and presentations). It’s fair to say this was new experience for the team having expected to be the minnows in Davos and slight outsiders, we now seem to have a seat at the table and are considered a genuine hope for change. More importantly, people were willing to help. They were looking to setup further meetings to discuss future projects or they were connecting the team up with fellow global leaders who they believe could help the movement or be helped by the movement.

A reputation as a global leader of democracy

Some truly exciting conversations were seeded in Davos. The team sat down with leaders from very large and very small nations, from Europe, North America and Asia and to discuss how MiVote could provide a more transparent and trustworthy community decision-making model in their countries.

2018 is the year of MiVote’s Global Positioning and Identifying Candidates in preparation for elections across the world from 2019.
