Aqdar World Summit is considered one of the international forums that focuses on the national goals of empowering communities and developing education. It is the only global initiative of its kind in the region that provides an opportunity for all segments of the society to participate and contribute to developing strong societies and ambitious generations.

This year, in its third edition, we aim through Aqdar World Summit to transfer our knowledge and experiences in different fields to other countries outside the UAE, and that is part of our strategy to share our moral values and experiences with the world.

We were keen in the 3rd edition to present a comprehensive agenda that discusses different topics under the theme: “Global Empowerment of Communities: Experiences & Lessons Learned”. The summit will feature different sessions with topics covering various fields presented by renowned speakers and experts from all over the world.

Aqdar World Summit this year will be held in conjunction with the Moscow Global forum – the forum that aims at exchanging practical, cultural, commercial and social experiences with all the concerned bodies which goes in line with the summit’s objectives in the Russian capital, Moscow.

In conclusion, we hope that the summit will highly contribute to achieve the vision of the United Arab Emirates in empowering individuals and communities and enhancing the values of creativity and innovation in various fields.

The UAE has become a role model in the field of human empowerment, and we are very proud to transfer this successful experience abroad through Aqdar World Summit that was first launched in 2017 in the UAE capital, Abu Dhabi. This year, in its third edition, we have chosen Moscow, Russia to host this global event for the first time.

Under the guidance of Lt. General H.H. Sheikh Saif bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior, Khalifa Empowerment Program – Aqdar is one of the international programs that aims to launch national initiatives to help the community individuals face and overcome challenges by enhancing the role of societies and providing them with the necessary expertise and knowledge to support themselves and their country on the national and international level.

The vision of Khalifa Empowerment Program has urged us to set effective strategies to achieve this goal, one of which is Aqdar World Summit that seeks to unify the local and international efforts to support individuals and communities and enable them to face various present and future challenges.

We seek through the summit this year to build strategic partnerships between the educational institutions in both countries to support the younger generations, and we hope the summit will come out with great benefit to all participants.


Dr. Abdul Salam Al Madani
Executive Chairman, Aqdar World Summit

After the successful completion of 2 consecutive editions in the UAE capital, Abu Dhabi, we are immensely delighted to witness ‘Aqdar World Summit’ crossing the shores of the UAE for the first time and presenting itself on the global stage in the Russian capital ‘Moscow’.

In its 3rd edition, Aqdar World Summit is being held under a new theme ‘Global Empowerment of Communities: Experiences and Lessons Learned’ with the aim of building an international platform that focuses its attention on issues and topics related to empowering individuals, developing smart and sustainable societies and raising awareness about programs that benefit communities and its populations across the world.

The UAE and Russia share common goals in many diverse fields and sectors including business, education and cultural spheres. Moreover, as the UAE is a global hub for innovation and sustainable practices – drawing the brightest minds, supporting worldwide initiatives and putting a great emphasis on building a cohesive society and a strong identity for individuals and communities alike, Aqdar World Summit provides an ideal opportunity for UAE and Russia to come together and explore these issues in great depth and detail.

We are highly confident that the first overseas edition of Aqdar World Summit in Moscow will greatly help in creating new grounds for cooperation and collaboration for both countries, particularly in the field of human empowerment and sustainability. While the summit, running parallel to the Moscow Global Forum brings together top world leaders, experts and high-profile speakers from various fields to seek their insights on human empowerment, the exhibition on the sidelines of the conference, offers the biggest brands and businesses from the public and private sectors a chance to showcase their latest projects in the field of innovation and sustainability.

In conclusion, I would like to thank all our partners, without whose continuous support, the Aqdar World Summit would not have reached this position. We hope that this third edition will benefit all participants and attendees from various sectors and help them achieve their goals.

Looking forward to welcoming you all in Moscow and wishing you a highly productive and enriching experience at Aqdar World Summit.
