Fostering Global Conversations

Students from across the UAE are invited to join us for these stimulating conversations to voice their ideas and share their perspectives on how we can collaborate together to make the world a better place.

How it works

To take part in the Next Gen World Majlis conversations, students are invited to answer one of the three questions related to the topic of our upcoming sessions in the form of a 2 to 3 minutes-long audio recording in English. Teachers will then pre-select two student recordings and submit them to the Expo School Programme team; 8 to 10 students will be selected and invited to join the discussion.
