Knowledge Bridges

Knowledge Bridges is a youth leadership program designed to equip young UAE Nationals (ages 18 – 24) with insights and skills through a global perspective in leadership and innovation. Each year, the program includes an educational visit to a country where youth are able to learn essential leadership and 21st Century skills as well as gain a first-hand view into the practices of some of the most innovative organizations in the country.

  • In 2017, the program included a visit to the United Nations Headquarters as well as other social organizations in New York, USA, for insights into how young leaders can create positive impact.
  • The 2018 edition of the program included a visit to Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, United Kingdom for insights into core principles of military leadership.
  • The 2019 edition held place in Singapore in collaboration with the Center for Asia Leadership and the theme focused on developing the tools to foster and sustain entrepreneurial and cross cultural approaches to problems.

Each year a theme is selected to create a bridge and transfer of knowledge between individuals and institutions locally and globally.
