The Ghaf Youth Majlis Series

Nurturing the Roots of our Heritage


Together with AlFahim Group, we have created a series of storytelling majlis’ that have been inspired by the symbolic national tree, which traditionally drew the UAE’s tribal leaders together for important meetings with citizens.

The series will allow for open discussions among renowned and experienced speakers and the younger generation, to help find a balance between modern life and protecting our ecosystems, while also keeping our traditions alive.

Is there more?

Well, it will also help you to think about current challenges in new ways, and open doors to new avenues, enabling you to connect with past wisdom and take it into the future.

So, what’s in store!

The exciting agenda includes:
