The Knowledge Week is a series of events in various cities around the world. It is organized by the Arab Knowledge Project (AKP), a joint initiative between the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge Foundation (MBRF) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). The Week’s agenda includes workshops and discussion panels to showcase and explore the key takeaways from the Knowledge Summit in Dubai, and the results of the Global Knowledge Index, among other topics.
The initial Knowledge Week was organized in conjunction with The Knowledge Summit 2017 in Dubai. Exporting the Knowledge Week to countries around the world seeks to promote the use of the Global Knowledge Index as a guide to growth and sustainable development, as well as a tool for change and for political debates. The series of meetings aims to promote effective dialogue, raise awareness and inform stakeholders and the general public about key aspects and expected outcomes from the Index.
