The Global Education & Skills Forum

The Global Education & Skills Forum (GESF) bought together world leaders from the public, private and social sectors seeking solutions to achieve education, equity and employment for all.

An initiative of the Varkey Foundation, the Global Education & Skills Forum, referred to as the ‘Davos of Education’ bought together world leaders from the public, private and social sectors seeking solutions to achieving education, equity and employment for all.

Held under the patronage of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. GESF went beyond sharing valuable insights and perspectives and was an essential platform for collaboration and problem solving – it was the place that takes ‘how it should be’ forward into innovative, multi-stakeholder ‘how do we get there?’’.

Attendees included Presidents, Prime Ministers, Education Ministers, senior Government officials, leading Tech companies, celebrities, teachers and students.
