The 50×50 Initiative involved holding 50 interactive workshops to gather ideas to further develop the UAE in the 50 years from 2021; following the Golden Jubilee of the UAE’s formation. The workshops engaged government and private school students to get their ideas, opinions and aspirations on various vital topics that will contribute to the preparation of the plan for the next 50 years.
The initiative is in line with the UAE’s national project titled ‘Designing the Next 50’ which aimed to unify minds and visions to achieve innovation and establish partnerships towards a new phase of development in the UAE.
The 50×50 Initiative was launched by Ministry of Education (MoE) in October 2020.
MoE engaged students from over 1,200 government and private schools in several digital interactive workshops. The sessions focussed on involving students in the plan, by exploring their views on various vital topics that will contribute to the preparation of the plan for the next 50 years. The initiative resulted in 7,066 ideas and 357 documented workshops.
