2014 World Economic Forum Called For A Solution To Youth Unemployment Problem

As we gear up for this year's World Economic Forum in Davos, we're looking back at some of the biggest issues talked about at last year's conference.

Many of the world's most influential thought leaders called for a new approach to tackle youth unemployment, an issue that leaves more than 200 million young people out of work world wide. Conference attendees like Coca-Cola CEO Muhtar Kent and Education for Employment President and CEO James McAuliffe sat down with HuffPost Live last year to talk about the issue.

"What's encouraging about this Davos is that the conversation has really moved on the issue of global youth employment, to just talking about challenge, raising awareness of the issue, to actually concretely talking about the potential solutions," McAuliffe said in 2014. "I think we're moving in the right direction."

The World Economic Forum annual meeting will take place from January 21-24.
