The historic signing of the normalization agreements between Israel and countries in the Middle East in the context of the Abraham Accords represents an opportunity for us to build bridges between youth and the future leaders of both countries around our shared goals of creating a better future for our region.
The peak of the delegation, taking place December on 7 includes a full-day exchange with students from the Dubai British School Emirates Hills and Dubai British School Emirates Jumeirah Park, of the Taaleem schools. Students will collaborate and spend the day co- creating innovative solutions around the challenge of water scarcity, through multi-cultural teamwork and an experiential ‘Makeathon’. We aspire to emphasize innovation, creativity, and imagining our shared future on this planet. The Dubai Future Foundation will provide an inspirational setting for this unique session, as we will ignite the students with hopes and aspirations for our common future. Through this unique program, we aim to nurture new global friendships, and encourage participants to become the next generation of change makers.
