MiSK Foundation showcases Saudi Arabia’s focus on building the capabilities and knowledge of future generations through multi-platform sponsorship of Inside the Middle East on CNN

Inside the Middle East, the ground-breaking monthly show about the region’s dynamic cultural diversity, will be sponsored on CNN International from 24 November by the MiSK Foundation.

MiSK’s association with one of CNN’s flagship shows about the Middle East is at the heart of a new campaign by the foundation to contribute to the fulfilment of the Saudi Vision 2030 by empowering and enabling the younger generation to increase their contribution to the development of Saudi Arabia. It is the MiSK Foundation’s first major international campaign since being established by HRH Prince Mohammed bin Salman, Deputy Crown Prince and Minister of Defense, to empower, nurture and inspire young Saudi men and women to fully realise their potential as part of the kingdom’s on-going economic transformation.

The campaign will show Saudi Arabia’s commitment to learning and leadership and seek to expand the MiSK Foundation’s initiatives in collaboration with world renowned institutions such as Harvard University, Khan Academy and the Boston Consulting Group.

Inside the Middle East draws on CNN’s unique presence in and understanding of the region to tell stories about art and culture to CNN’s global audience. The first MiSK Foundation-sponsored episode airing on 24 November will include reports on independent film-making in Cairo, contemporary arts in Jeddah and body art in Amman.
