The Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Foundation (Misk) held on Wednesday the Misk Talk global initiative in London, where 12 young Saudis studying in London took the stage to present their ideas for achieving Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 goals.

“Our role is to provide the opportunity for the Saudi talent to share knowledge in all fields and with the world,” said Mohammed Marwan Abu Azza, Executive Director of Marketing and Communication at Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Foundation.

“The stories of truth and knowledge have been presented, as a summary of a practical and professional experience of young men and women,” he added.

In their presentations, young Saudi students addressed a variety of topics on several tracks, including health and scientific research in the areas of obesity, cancer and stroke, overcoming mental health problems, technology solutions for future cities, nanotechnology for emerging memory devices, as well as entrepreneurship in several areas.

Misk is a non-profit organization that aims to empower youth to become active participants in Saudi Arabia’s developing knowledge economy, focusing on four key areas, including education, creative and digital media, technology, culture and arts.

The Foundation seeks to achieve these objectives through its initiatives and strategic partnerships with the leaders of public and private sectors around the world.
