WEF/Global Leaders for Tomorrow/1993
The WEF's Global Leaders for Tomorrow (WEF/GLTs) were launched in 1992. The group was composed of 200 young leaders from business, politics, academia, the arts and the media, all of them under 43 years of age. The program became an annual one; following year's cadre is listed at WEF/Global Leaders for Tomorrow/1994.
The WEF claims, rather implausibly, that the members were "well established through their achievements and positions of influence". This seems extraordinary prescient, given that many of these people were totally unknown at the time. Angela Merkel, for example, was a nobody from the former East Germany incorporated into united Germany in 1991.
The complete list of participants in the World Economic Forum's Global Leaders for Tomorrow program for the year 1993, their first gathering, is no longer available on their website, but possible to find in archived form.
