PANEL AL FAKHOORA – My forced identity: How has conflict and war shaped youth identity in the MENA region? My forced identity

The global economy is changing; post-secondary education is no longer an advantage, but a minimum requirement for gainful employment. Employers demand versatile, highly-qualified graduates equipped with 21st century skills.
For over 25 years, the MENA region has had one of the highest youth unemployment rates in the world. The private and public sectors must work together to align higher education with economic empowerment. By providing innovative employment options, such as attracting corporations to outsource to the MENA region, we empower youth to rise above low-skilled or informal employment.

WORKSHOP – Educating for well-being: How does cultivating educator SEL matter for unlearning and relearning what it means to be human?

Practical session for integrating social-emotional learning (SEL) meaningfully in class.

Although the importance of social-emotional learning (SEL), in all education contexts is well-established, its meaningful integration in curricula faces major bureaucratic as well as more personal challenges. How can we help young people to cultivate a practice of well-being, if we haven’t effectively managed it ourselves? This workshop provides educators with evidence-based social-emotional skills and tools to support their well-being. Participants will reflect on presentations and join group activities to build a discipline for SEL based on cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and empathy-building tools.
