Contribute to deepening the understanding of the future generation of students of the UAE Vision 2071, as well as understanding its contents and dimensions.
Raise the awareness of Emirati students about the importance of their role in looking ahead to the future, and start preparing and qualifying them to contribute effectively to achieving the UAE Vision.
Enhance the Emirati students’ cognitive and personal skills in order to prepare them for the knowledge economy and promote their culture of innovation and leadership.
Refine different and diverse talents and interests of all students in a manner that serves the interests of the country and its major trends in the present and future.
Create a wide digital space to document the aspirations of Emirati students, and share and follow-up these aspirations on a national scale.
The initiative is based on the foundations of the UAE Vision 2071:
- To orient and guide students to respond to the world’s changing variables
- Preserve the UAE values, identity and culture as the most important constants of development in the country
- Empower the generation of mission, youth and national human resources as the foundation of the Centennial Achievement
- A generation capable of leading the knowledge economy
Every student in the Emirati school writes a document of his own, describing what he aspires to achieve when he grows up and shows his commitment to the ethics and qualities that the UAE leaders put for the future generation, which was launched within the education axes in the United Arab Emirates Centennial 2071. This document is called the “National Pact”
The initiative targets all students in the elementary, preparatory and secondary levels from grades 1 to 12 in all public education schools in the UAE
Participating students will achieve
Develop a future vision for what they want to achieve
Document their sense of belonging to the UAE vision
Learn the principles of looking ahead to the future
Share their dreams with a wide audience
Own their decisions and enhance their confidence in their choices
Develop their thinking and innovation skills
Recognize and develop their strengths

The initiative will be officially launched during the second week of the 2018 academic year and will continue until the end according to the following stages:
After giving the starting signal, the schools will initiate the activities of the initiative with the student as shown below:
First and second grades of basic education
The school administration instructs moral education teachers to:
Plan a one-class activity on future aspirations of the student with a focus on the concepts of identity and dream. To answer the question: What do you want to be in the future?
Ensure that each student gets his chance to express his future dream to his peers and to his teacher
Ensure that the expression is done through a drawing or a picture or posters or through simple words that students proficiently write
The products are hung with the student's name, grade and date in a clear corner of the class
Ensure that all works are documented and saved in paper and electronic formats (photos)
Grades Three to Twelve:
This first phase of the initiative is limited to the writing activity only, where a digital model of the "National Pact" will be used
The school administration needs to make the necessary arrangements to complete the writing activity electronically using the computer or digital tablets
The school administration instructs moral education teachers to prepare an activity class on the initiative, entitled "The National Pact", to be centred on the personality and characteristics of the Emirati student as described by the UAE Centennial 2071
In order to present the idea, teachers in the planning of the activity use the objectives of the initiative and the above-mentioned basis in line with the needs of the age groups they teach
The idea of each Pact must be linked to the concepts of citizenship and homeland, loyalty to it, and promise and the future
By the end of the activity each student would have written his own Pact
Each student pact is saved
