Children can only aspire to what they know exists – Building a creative approach to social mobility

As a major sponsor of the upcoming event, EdEx Qatar 2018, KidZania Doha is welcoming its Global Director of Education Dr Ger Graus OBE as a keynote speaker. Dr Graus is a renowned figure in the field of education.

His keynote address and the subsequent panel session will focus on KidZania’s global education strategy, including its Think-Tank, Ambassador Schools and Industry Partners. Its local, contextualised implementation and the evaluation in partnership with Havas Helia and Tribal Planet Inc amongst others, lead to a ‘Global Barometer of Children’s Aspirations’.

KidZania’s Approach to Education

In his EdEx Qatar keynote address, Dr Graus will outline how KidZania’s approach to education and entertainment is leading to enhanced life chances for children, through purposeful and innovative ways of engaging with the private sector, an evidence-based voice in the world of education and entertainment, as well as a sustainable, socially responsible approach to partnerships: return on involvement instead of return on investment. And it’s all great fun too!

‘Children can only aspire to what they know exists’ is Dr Graus’s mantra and he sees KidZania’s approach to education and entertainment as a significant piece in the large jigsaw which portrays a better world with endless horizons for people who deserve it most: our children. Representatives from Think-Tanks and Ambassador Schools also confirmed their attendance:

Ameena A Hussain EdD
