Dubai Future Foundation has launched the second issue from a series of reports to tackle the different challenges that organizations in Dubai and the world will face once the COVID-19 global outbreak subsides. The series comes at a crucial time where public and private sector organizations need to be well-prepared for future opportunities and challenges.

Titled “Life After COVID-19: Education”, the second report highlights that the education sector is one that has been required to change rapidly in response to COVID-19. Schools and universities have been closed due to the pandemic and education institutions have been obliged to offer distance learning platforms to students. Globally, UNESCO reported that 776.7 million school children have been affected by school closures around the world as a result of COVID-19. Although some students are taking ‘breaks’ from schooling for the short term, others wish to continue their studies online so as to not affect their progression through school.
