Following his participation on a Davos panel co-hosted by Purpose, the UN Foundation, and +SocialGood, Branson reflected upon the changing nature of power in this blog post.

At the event, Co-founder & CEO Jeremy Heimans introduced the concept of “new power,” which aims to help a mainstream audience better understand the changing nature of power and move beyond the usual banal discussion about the role of technology and social media to a more structural discussion about the new models and institutions that are emerging.

Other featured guests included Kumi Naidoo of Greenpeace, Matt Damon and Gary White of Water.org, Hannah Jones of Nike, Kathy Calvin of the UN Foundation, and more. For the full video of the event, click here.
