Change-makers and aspiring leaders from around the globe have come together to officially launch Expo 2020 Dubai’s World Majlis series.
Based on a timeless UAE tradition, the majlis is a place where we can have meaningful exchanges between people from all types of cultures, backgrounds and experiences. It is where we connect minds to create a brighter future.
The World Majlis session, gathered 17 thought leaders and 15 students with an array of views and insights at Manarat Al Saadiyat in Abu Dhabi, for an in-depth discussion about the lessons and values of the UAE’s Founding Father, Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, and his vision for a sustainable future.
Expo 2020 wants to encourage people to look differently at challenges and make a real impact. Creating a safe space for open dialogue is a powerful avenue to achieve this.
The World Majlis series is an example of how Expo 2020 aims to leave a strong legacy by pushing the boundaries of what a World Expo can and should be: a driver for positive change, throughout the journey to 2020 and beyond.
A series of more than 50 World Majlis sessions will take place throughout the journey to 2020 and during the six months of Expo 2020, both in the UAE and abroad. Will your city host a World Majlis?
