Organized by the Abu Dhabi Department of Education and Knowledge, Parenthood: The Unconference is set to be the world’s first event of its kind at Yas Island’s Etihad Arena from 2nd to 4th Nov. 2022, according to Gulf News.

The program will cover all stages of parenting from early childhood to adolescence across 5 themes: Identity, New Perspectives, Development, Well-Being, and Early Childhood.
