Global Education and Skills Forum in Dubai

Global Education and Skills Forum in Dubai - Coming Soon in UAE
18 March 2017, 19 March 2017 07:30 AM - 07:30 AM

The Global Education and Skills Forum will take place on 18th and 19th of March at the Atlantis The Palm.

Now more than ever, the world needs the collective intelligence and leadership of public, private and social sectors from every country, culture and faith.
That’s why the Global Education & Skills Forum in 2017 is posing the question: How do we make ‘real’ global citizens?

Relevant to all areas of curriculum, education systems must prepare children for living and working in a global society and to be the solution to the challenges of our century.

Global citizenship is an educational target in the newly finalized Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s). And, the OECD is developing ways to assess it (as ‘global competence’) through the international assessment framework PISA in 2018.

By joining the Forum, the guests will explore ways in which educators, learners, governments, businesses and NGOs can acquire the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes to:

– Understand other peoples and their culture, and our common humanity;
– Develop an interest in and knowledge about global themes and issues;
– Act in their communities with a sense of responsibility for the world.

Organized by: Global Teacher Prize, Global Education & Skills Forum, Varkey Foundation
Venue: Atlantis The Palm, Dubai
