Following the success of the previous two years, B4Development and Nudge Lebanon virtually launched the 3rd annual BX Arabia summit on 20th and 21st December, 2020.
Over two days, BX Arabia 2020 hosted 9 panels gathering 37 speakers including policymakers, academics and practitioners, and had a virtual reach of over 500+ attendees from the region and abroad.
BX Arabia 2020 showcased the strides made in harnessing the power of behavioural science to tackle the challenges that were presented as a result of the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic that swept the world by surprise over the past year, and its adaption to the “new normal”. This year’s summit covered topics related to mental health & well-being, remote learning and its impact on student learning, and compliance with COVID-19 preventive measures, among many others.
B4Development Foundation (formerly QBIU) was founded in 2016 by the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy - in charge of preparations for the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar - as the first behavioral insights and nudge unit in the Arab world.
