A new initiative called “Education for Shared Societies” is being developed in the partnership of World Leadership Alliance – Club de Madrid (WLA- CdM) and the Varkey Foundation.
WLA-CdM, one of BGF and MDI’s closest partners in developing the AIWS 7-layer Model, partnered with the Varkey Foundation and kicked off “Education for Shared Societies” with the purpose to channel the collective knowledge of multiple fields to highlight the role of education in building peaceful communities from Shared Societies perspective. The expected outcome of the project is a strong Call to Action on Education for Shared Societies.
The kick-off of this initiative was held in Dubai on March 16th. The event was considered a brainstorming to identify stakeholders and participants, evaluating the possibilities to make contribution to transformative policies and practices with the presence of 30 representatives from governments, policy makers, educators, etc. who desire to present their opinion on how education can be better.
