iReporter in the mix at global summit

some_text

 

The normally sleepy town of Davos, Switzerland, is bustling with world leaders, business executives, social activists and iReport wunderkind Trevor Dougherty. The 18-year-old is attending the World Economic Forum, an annual summit aimed at tackling the problems facing the world.

 

He’s going to be busy during the five-day conference. He's blogging for both "The Washington Post" and Reuters  and is scheduled to participate in a panel discussion on social network addiction. Plus, he'll be sharing his experiences with us here at CNN iReport.

 

Dougherty says the scene at the conference center is "pretty crazy," with people pounding away on their laptops and iPads and doing lots of networking.  "I've probably got 30 business cards in my pocket right now," he said. He even got to meet with forum founder Klaus Schwab on Wednesday afternoon.

 

He is the youngest American to attend the conference, but this isn't his first time on a big stage. He got our attention in 2008, when he worked his way the front row at the Democratic National Conventionand has continued to send amazing stories from all over the world ever since.
