The concept idea of “The future is now” was used to arrange the Education Management Summit with the assistance of the Republic of Azerbaijan’s IDPs and refugees. Three panels comprised the event, which was attended by heads of higher education institutions, social activists, scientists, and representatives of state institutions. During the panel discussions, topics such as youth education, selecting the appropriate career path and specialization, global experience in this area, collaboration between state and non-state actors to develop and enhance practical intelligence, and new approaches and terms utilized in global education systems were examined.
One of the five national priorities of Azerbaijan’s socio-economic development to be implemented by 2030 is the Great Return to territories liberated from occupation—sustainable settlement and reintegration into economic activity, according to Deputy Chairman of the State Committee Fuad Huseynov, who spoke at the event’s opening. The First State Program on the Great Return was approved and is currently being carried out on the basis of this. President Ilham Aliyev personally oversees the construction and restoration projects in the territories that have been liberated from occupation. President Ilham Aliyev and First Vice-President Mehriban Aliyeva visit these territories on a regular basis to learn about the status of the implemented measures firsthand.
One of the primary objectives stated in the Action Plan of the First State Program on the Great Return was the establishment of educational institutions in the rebuilt regions of Eastern Zangazur and Karabakh. The fact that over a thousand educational facilities were destroyed when our regions were occupied was underlined. President Ilham Aliyev’s directives are being followed in regards to the restoration and building of educational facilities, with new schools being created in each district that has been renovated. People expressed confidence that the Education Management Summit, which centered around the idea of “The Future is now” will help advance efforts in the areas that have been liberated from occupation.
