Al Maktoum Foundation to host third annual Knowledge Summit in Dubai
The event will explore the concept of planning for the future while highlighting Dubai’s unique experience in this domain.
The summit will also tackle concepts considered vital for developing countries like reading, which forms the basis of such industries as knowledge, medicine, technology and education.
Because of reading’s importance in accessing knowledge, the summit will witness the launch of the “Reading Index,” a tool created in conjunction with the Development Program of the United Nations (UNDP). The program handles knowledge initiatives and measures its impact on the Arab region.
Specific sessions at the conference will examine the current state of reading in the Arab world, the potential of current initiatives to develop the state of reading, and the concept of the “media of the future” -- and the role they can play in shaping individual personalities.
