Abu Dhabi - Al Maghrib Today

The Educational Affairs Office of the Crown Prince Court of Abu Dhabi announced that His Highness Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, UAE Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, will deliver a keynote speech on the first day of the Qudwa 2017 Global Teachers’ Forum. 
To be held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, on October 7 and 8 at the Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi, the event is set to draw the participation of 900 education professionals from over 80 countries. 
Ahead of the second edition of the forum themed, ‘Teaching for the Future', His Highness Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan said "The U.A.E. spares no effort in helping its young people unlock their creative abilities and in empowering them to achieve their full potential so that they can lead their country towards a prosperous future for generations to come. The UAE is proud of its global reputation as a visionary nation and an incubator for future ideas aimed at developing human capabilities and building a society that is rich in knowledge, science and culture.”  
Stressing the importance of the event, that places teachers in the spotlight, he added: “The role of teachers as role models for all generations shall not change regardless of what tools and techniques science and technology may create to facilitate the learning process. These are only means to enable teachers to engage the new generation that uses different methods to acquire knowledge, but still needs a human being to look up to, to instil values and ethics, to stimulate creativity, and to drive home the importance of contributing to the advancement of society.” 
Furthermore, His Highness Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan praised the forum's mission and objectives that reflect the U.A.E.'s approach to building a society that prioritises knowledge and peace and is deeply aware of its responsibility to participate in global socio-economic development.
