World Economic Forum Honors Lynsey Addario

What do Nate Silver, Chelsea Clinton, will.i.am and Lynsey Addario have in common?

All were just named Young Global Leaders by the World Economic Forum.

Lynsey Addario

The 199 honorees from 70 countries —  ranging across business, arts, academia, government, media and non-profits — will be closely involved in the meetings, research and initiatives of the World Economic Forum. They’ll represent the views and interests of “the next generation of leaders.”

All are under 40 years old.

Lynsey — a New York Times Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist who has covered everything from the war in Afghanistan and drought in Africa to poverty in Mississippi and sex trafficking in New York — is passionately committed to documenting, and improving, our planet.

She started doing it right here in Westport. Lynsey is a proud graduate of the Staples High School Class of 1999 1991.

And her hometown is rightfully proud of the World Economic Forum’s newest Young Global Leader.

  2. I’ve said this before but it bears repeating, as a Family friend for many years, I attest that all of Camille Addario’s four daughters are absolutely amazing people as demonstrated by Lyn’s most recent honor. We, as a community, can share in this familial pride together. Brava!
