Qatar Foundation will bring together experts in the fields of progressive education and sustainability to open up a worldwide conversation

Qatar Foundation will bring together expert voices in a global discussion on two key global themes – education and sustainability – at the 76th Session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), as it contributes to crucial conversations aimed at reaching out to the world.

From 19-22 September, Qatar Foundation will host four virtual sessions on the sidelines of UNGA and Global Goals Week to explore these issues:

  • How the potential of youth can be harnessed to drive action on climate change
  • How digital credentialing and recognition systems can broaden the range and quality of learning opportunities
  • How to create a more progressive approach to climate change education that empowers people to elevate their green innovation skills
  • How edtech could benefit from impact investing

The sessions are open to the public and accessible via  The events will also be live-streamed on Qatar Foundation’s Twitter and LinkedIn.

Aligning with the theme of the 76th Session of UNGA which is Building resilience through hope – to recover from COVID-19, rebuild sustainability, respond to the needs of the planet, respect the rights of people, and revitalize the United Nations, the events organised by Qatar Foundation aim to showcase its willingness to engage in the biggest global conversations, leverage its ecosystem to share expertise and insight with the world, and bring people together to find ways of overcoming challenges.
