Washington, DC - Today, the World Economic Forum announced that Congressman Seth Moulton (D-MA) has been selected as a 2016 Young Global Leader. Moulton is one of 25 Young Global Leaders selected from North America and 121 young leaders selected from around the world.


“It’s a great honor to have been selected as a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum,” said Moulton. “Being a part of this forum provides each of us with a unique opportunity and, more importantly, a responsibility to address our world’s most pressing social, economic, and cultural challenges. I take this responsibility seriously, and I look forward to partnering with the diverse and experienced Young Global Leader community to advance our common interests and shape our collective future."


The Forum for Young Global Leaders includes leaders in politics, business, civil society, academia, technology, and arts and culture across seven geographic regions. Each year, the Forum reviews thousands of nominated candidates from around the world and selects individuals under 40 who meet their criteria as innovative, enterprising, and socially minded leaders committed to making the world a better place.


Current and former Young Global Leaders include Heads of State and Fortune 500 company leaders, as well as Nobel Prize and Academy Award winners. In describing the class of 2016, the Forum states, “Taken together, they represent the very best of this generation and, as public services worldwide face funding shortfalls, they emphasize the need for future leaders to be tech-savvy, civic-minded innovators.”


“We want these young leaders to be part of the solution and to provide a community that helps them to break down silos, work across sectors, bridge cultures and have the skills get things done in private, public and civil society organizations,” said John Dutton, Head of the Young Global Leaders at the World Economic Forum.


Class of 2016 Young Global Leaders include, Amal Clooney, Dhivya Suryadevara, Shu Wang, Ashton Kutcher, Roland G. Fryer, and Farida Bedwei. For a full list of the Class of 2016 Young Global Leaders:
