Festival of Thinkers in the UAE

The United Arab Emirates organized a Festival of Thinkers from October 22 to 24. The conference gathered 16 Nobel Prize laureates and 80 international thinkers well versed in the various fields of science, medicine, philosophy, law, economy, and information technology.

Abdul Hamid Hallab, special adviser to the AUB president, and Hassan Diab, vice president for Regional External Programs, were among those invited to the festival. Diab served as a panelist discussing "Preparing Creative and Responsible Citizens: Role of Educators" and Hallab was a panelist in the discussions of "Moving Beyond Conflicts."

Sheikh Nahayan Bin Mubarak Al-Nahayan, UAE's Minister of Higher Educational and Scientific Research, opened the festival. The participants discussed in depth how to promote and care for creativity and thinking in society on an international level. The event gave local and regional young thinkers a fine opportunity to confer on the many challenges needed to plan for a better future in their countries.
