Letter to Parents
Greetings from the UAE:
The idea of sending a family member overseas to attend a conference can cause some parents concern and apprehension. The recent state of world events has made such concerns even more prevalent. It is hoped that visitors to our website will have the opportunity to form a general impression of the UAE and to obtain an understanding of how safe and hospitable this country is.
The Education Without Borders conference is an important opportunity that should not be missed. The conference will provide your family member with the opportunity to participate as a member of an international body of students and educators who will work side by side with high profile keynote speakers.
Our past six conferences were honored with the insights and wisdom of Sheikh Nahayan Mabarak Al Nahayan, Professor Muhammad Yunus, Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, Dr. Edward DeBono, Bertrand Piccard, Richard Heinzl, Tony Blair, Robert Swan, Dr. Mark Plotkin as well as Washington Post journalist, David Ignatius, and astronaut Bernard Harris, President and CEO of Vesalius Ventures. Our next conference promises to be even bigger in scope, providing your family member with the opportunity to meet and work with world leaders and the foremost professionals in the fields of technology and education. Participants will experience a new and exciting environment, building networks and friendships that will last a lifetime.
As organizers we are committed to ensuring that you and your loved ones have access to all information so that you can feel both secure and comfortable in your decision. The Education Without Borders conference is a unique chance to be a part of an international academic community and we sincerely hope that your loved ones will be with us to contribute in March 2013.
