The Spring Meeting of the Broadband Commission took place in Dubai on March 12-13 at the invitation of Mr Sunny Varkey, Founder and Executive Chairman of the GEMS Education Group.

In conjunction with the Global Education & Skills Forum 2016 which, from its inception in 2013, brings together leaders from the public, private and social sectors seeking solutions to achieving education, equity and employment for all, the Broadband Commission convened its spring meeting to discuss among other issues, how to innovate in education through technology.

During the two-day event Commissioners had chance to attend onsite sessions of the current three Broadband Commission Working Groups on Saturday, as well as the full-day meeting of the Commission on Sunday. The full meeting of the Commission also revisited the issue of new broadband targets to help achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
