Comedian and YouTube sensation Bhuvan Bam and Bollywood actor Deepika Padukone will participate at the World Economic Forum (WEF) annual meeting 2020. WEF 2020 marks the 50th anniversary of the meet. This year at the meet, Bollywood star Deepika will be awarded with a WEF Crystal Award.
The stigma around mental health will be one of the subjects to be discussed at the global meet in the Swiss town, with Deepika, the founder of Live Love Laugh Foundation which aims to spread awareness on mental health, leading the discussion.
Bhuvan will be at Davos primarily thanks to his impact on YouTube, as an online creator. At the meet, he will attend conferences and will also be vlogging his experience to educate his audience on the discussion of a cohesive and sustainable world.
“Being invited to WEF 2020 is an honour. I’m looking forward to meeting world and industry leaders to open discussion on important subjects. WEF was founded 50 years ago, and the initiative of having an annual meet where powerful people from across the globe unify for the betterment of the world is what we all need, especially in a time like this,” Bhuvan said. Joining the digital star will be 100 Indian CEOs and other creators from YouTube. While in Davos, Bhuvan will also attend a dinner hosted by YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki, who is inviting creators from around the world.
