Rewired Summit

December 12 to 14

This December, the RewirEd Summit, led by Dubai Cares in partnership with Expo 2020 Dubai, and in collaboration with the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs & International Cooperation, will be a pivotal moment for the future of education. The Global Business Coalition for Education is working with the Summit to ensure strategic engagement by the global business community. We will engage a network of companies who are committed to playing an active role in ending the global education crisis.

During the Summit, we will bring together the voices of the business community making collective announcements and commitments to support educational opportunity.


Why education?

Education is the key to unlocking all social, economic, and development goals: innovation, economic growth, anti-racism, climate action, equity, skills for the future of work, gender equality, health outcomes, job creation, and closing the digital divide, to name a few.

Equally, education is central to the success of the business community. Fromthe talent pipeline and the next wave of innovation to the income of future consumers, quality education and skill development have a direct impact on whether businesses can survive and thrive in communities and regions across the globe. The consequences of the global pandemic and its economic aftermath will be real: education will be on the chopping block of government, international aid, and corporate budgets. Effective investment today in education will accelerate the speed and success of efforts to rebuild national and global economies.

What to expect at the RewirEd Summit at Expo 2020 Dubai:

  • Roundtable on French know-how in the education sector: digital school, school of the future?
  • Roundtable on French know-how in the higher education sector: the covid crisis, a creative destruction for ESR?
  • Round table on French know-how in the vocational training sector: the prospects for a learning life?
  • Roundtable on EdTech For Good: How are technologies opening up new territories for education?
