A student delegation from PSAU headed by Dr. Thlab Shakra Dean of Student Affairs participated in the Saudi Universities Forum for Youth and Future Industries. The forum was organized by the International Union of Muslim Scouts in cooperation with UNESCO in Rome, Italy during the period 15-22/5/1441H Corr. 10-17/1/2020.
The program aims to provide students with some skills towards planning for the future (the International Union of Muslim Scouts has allocated to outstanding and talented students). In addition, it aims to inform them of the latest programs and international experiences in education and transferring their experience to their colleagues at the university.
The program included a number of training courses, events, and visits, which were represented by students obtaining three training courses: (planning for making the future, the eight steps for success, and the art of self-management), provided by UNESCO. Moreover, university students participating in the forum visited two universities (Luiss and Rome Sapienza), where they moved between colleges and academic departments and viewed the facilities designated for university students, such as the library, learning resources, laboratories, and classrooms, and listened to introductory lectures about these universities. The students also visited a number of historical and archeological places in Rome. The visit concluded with the meeting of the Ambassador of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques in Italy, His Royal Highness Prince Faisal bin Sattam bin Abdulaziz, where the head of the university delegation delivered the speech of the participating delegations and presented a memorial shield to His Highness.
