The week ahead Movers and makers – from Davos to Bangalore

Here are the stories we’re following the week of January 18:


Davos – then and now

Tuesday: Back in the 1860s, people travelled to Davos to spend hours lying on sun loungers, drink milk and generally eat well.

What’s in a theme?

Wednesday: Mastering the Fourth Industrial Revolution – what does the theme of this year’s annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos involve? What does it even mean?’s business correspondent Matthew Allen will be blogging and explaining from behind WEF lines.


Making a difference

Thursday: travels to Bangalore to look into Enable Makeathon, a two-month crowdsourcing challenge organised by the Swiss-run International Committee of the Red Cross to encourage innovative solutions for disabled people in rural India.


Equal rights for Jews

Friday: 150 years ago Jews received equal citizen rights in Switzerland. This was a milestone for the community – legally, politically and emotionally. We bring you the background story and consider the situation today.
