DUBAI, 5th December, 2022 (WAM) -- The Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge Foundation (MBRF) announced that the Youth Knowledge Forum will feature several panel discussions and youth circles, as well as a preliminary session for the Arab gathering of young leaders and a session to announce the recipients of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge Award.
MBRF is organising in collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) under the patronage of H.H. Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Chairperson of Dubai Culture and Arts Authority (Dubai Culture) and Member of the Dubai Council. The event will be held in person on December 6 and 7, and then virtually on December 8 and 9, 2022.
Additionally, the forum will also organise a session on Global Knowledge Index and highlight its most notable results, as well as analyse its role in promoting knowledge. Through the forum, MBRF will also emphasise the significance of the partnership with UNDP in fostering knowledge and development in the Arab region and around the world.
The four-day event aims to highlight several knowledge accomplishments worldwide to foster excellence and creativity among the younger generation.
The forum serves as a platform that encourages the younger generation to embrace challenges in order to achieve and increase their aspirations. It seeks to empower youth to be more creative and innovative, as well as actively playing a part in disseminating knowledge around the world.
Additionally, the forum will include a session to honour the winners of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge Award, which is awarded annually to global figures and institutions who have made significant contributions to the field of knowledge.
UNDP says the Youth Knowledge Forum involves two main pillars crucial to any development journey, knowledge and youth, which are of greater relevance to the UNDP. Through this event, we aim to underline the significance of investing in knowledge to deal with various global challenges and build a brighter future. We believe that the youth is an important component for knowledge-based development and empowering them would aid in the creation of a prosperous future.
