II- KAMRAN MOFID’s GUEST’s BLOG: Here on The Guest Blog you’ll find commentary, analysis, insight and at times provocation from some of the world’s influential and spiritual thought leaders as they weigh in on critical questions about the state of the world, the emerging societal issues, the dominant socio-economic logic, globalisation, money, markets, sustainability, dialogue, cooperation, environment, media, spirituality, faith, culture, the youth, the purpose of business and economic life, the crucial role of leadership, and the challenges facing economic, business, management, education, and more.

This is the Manifesto to Make the World Great Again

The key that will unlock the door to world’s greatness is values-led education

As Nelson Mandela used to remind us again and again, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. ”Education is the key to eliminating gender inequality, to reducing poverty, to creating a sustainable planet, to preventing needless deaths and illness, and to fostering peace, harmony, justice, egalitarianism, equality, good race relations, progress and prosperity, for many and not the few.

In short, education is an investment, and for that matter, it is one of the most critical investments we can make. I hope that one day soon this will be realised by all, and thus, when it comes to the annual  governmental budget allocations, to my mind, spending on education should not be seen as expenditure, but as an investment in people and in humanity.
