Davos 2023: Climate activists protest the presence of oil giants at World Economic Forum

No Comments

Climate activists are crying foul over the presence of many of the world’s largest oil and gas firms at this week’s World Economic Forum – as protests erupted ahead of the event.

Thousands of global business leaders and political elites will converge in Davos, Switzerland for the WEF, which runs Monday through Friday. Among those expected to be in attendance are executives from massive energy firms including BP, Chevron, and Saudi Aramco.

“We are demanding concrete and real climate action,” said Nicolas Siegrist, the 26-year-old organizer of the protests who also heads the Young Socialists party in Switzerland.
