Youku Partners With World Economic Forum to Host China’s First ‘Summer Davos Debates’

July 15, 2010

BEIJING, July 15 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — Starting immediately, Youku, China’s
leading online video site, will formally launch China’s first “Summer Davos
Debates,” partnering with the World Economic Forum. The event will select
videos on the subject of “sustainable growth” that express the viewpoints of
the general public. Two winners will be invited to the Summer Davos Forum with
all expenses paid.

The “Summer Davos Debates” activity is the first-ever World Economic Forum
event to collect videos from Chinese internet users. It is designed to foster
direct dialogue and discussion with the wider public on key issues affecting
the planet. This year’s theme will be sustainable growth.

Starting immediately and concluding on August 26, Youku users will use
videos to express their opinions on sustainable development, or to tell their
own stories about the topic. Any video uploaded to Youku and tagged with the
phrase “Davos debates” will automatically be entered into the competition. Ten
finalists will be selected between August 26th and 30th, and then the final
two winners will be selected in early September after soliciting and
considering the comments of Youku users.

The makers of the best two videos will be specially invited on an all-
expenses-paid trip to Tianjin to personally participate in the World Economic
Forum’s Annual Meeting of the New Champions (“Summer Davos”) from September

The meeting location for the “Summer Davos Debates” will be specially
built and arranged so that when the time comes the final winners of the
contest can be the hosts of a special area of the forum. The winners will be
able to invite forum guests to give interviews there, but they can also leave
to attend seminars, and meet with distinguished politicians, economists,
business executives, and scholars.
