Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, Chairman of  the Executive Council of Dubai and Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Dubai Future Foundation, has said that the emirate continues to strive to become one of the leading nations shaping the future of the world.
Sheikh Hamdan's remarks came during the launch of the Dubai Future Academy's 'Dubai Future Experts Programme', which seeks to train local talent and equip them with the skills and expertise to design future-related initiatives.
"The programme aims to develop people with specialised skills in strategic sectors. We aim to empower future generations to enhance their role in developing projects and initiatives that can shape the future of Dubai," Sheikh Hamdan said.

"I invite all Dubai Government entities to nominate talented staff for the programme, which will teach them new skills and expertise that enable them to enhance their contributions to enhancing the government sector and developing future-oriented projects that support the progress of Dubai and the UAE."
Sheikh Hamdan said that launching the programme is another step towards preparing the next generation of future experts in strategic sectors and equipping them with the skills to identify and analyse key local, regional and global changes.
Participants will be selected from a pool of candidates nominated by government entities based on their design thinking skills. Employees of government entities with foresighting skills can nominate themselves through the Dubai Future Academy's website.
The year-and-a-half-long programme is divided into three levels of six months each. The three progressive levels include future analyst, future executive and futuristic strategist.
