Posted on May 26, 2019


Word as Battlefield: By Ethan Paki

This year the Youth Global Forum will celebrate its fifth year anniversary in the city of Amsterdam, the Netherlands. 

Under the theme of ‘’Industry 5.0 vs Inclusive Development: Where is the future?’’, Dr Oualid Ali will give a keynote presentation on ‘’Industry 5.0: Where we’ve come from and where are we headed’’. He is the Founder and President of the Future Cities Council & Director of Training and the Smart Solutions Centre (TSSC) at the German University of Technology in Oman (GUtech). We sat down briefly with Dr Oualid to get his thoughts on the upcoming Youth Global Forum.

His advice is really valuable! “The future is changing so fast with the exponential technologies invading our life every minute. If you want to have a place in the future, you have to watch the trends of technologies, what is coming in terms of jobs, prepare yourself by acquiring the right skills and competencies of the future, they will be your weapon. Don’t wait for the future, act now and create it”. #ytglobal #youthtime
