UAE the Intellectual Centre

I think it is nice that UAE wants to be the Intellectual Centre in the region and the world, but to do this, I believe that they need to look at the begin instead of the end of a person’s educational education.  If the UAE wants to be the centre of intellectual they need to start at birth, and through out Early Education, not just Higher Education.  The child’s building blocks of their brain starts at birth and after age seven the blocks are just about finished growing. My wish is to see more importance put on Early Education, to truly give the children of the UAE a better chance when they are in Higher Education.  This in return will truly give the UAE the title of Intellectual Centre in the region and the world.

Khaleej Times:

Speaking at the closing ceremony at Dubai Men’s College, Shaikh Nahyan said: “You (Nobel laureates and experts) brought to the festival great experience, impressive knowledge, superior intellect and a commitment to global progress. The presentations and discussions reflected your conviction that thinkers, acting alone or in concert, have the capacity and the responsibility to effect necessary progress and change.

“I am also hopeful the festival will help establish the United Arab Emirates as a major intellectual centre in the region and the world.”

A sapling was planted as part of the concluding day of the festival.

A panel discussion on the role of educators in preparing creative and responsible citizens was the highlight of the day. University heads spoke about their ideas and plans for educating the younger generation.
