The National Archives derived the workshops subjects from excerpts from its issued book (Khalifa a Journey into the Future) so that the information is consistent with the memory of the place, Al Muwaiji Palace, where H.H. Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the UAE President, was born.

The workshops were based on excerpts from the book (Khalifa a Journey into the Future); including His Highness’s birth, upbringing, education, and development, enablement and construction efforts. The workshops affirmed that no more eloquent testimony to the greatness of this leader than the limitless praise and absolute loyalty to the UAE President whose people concurred and expressed as one: “We are all Khalifa”.
The workshops offered the students an opportunity to express to the UAE President their gratitude, faithfulness, and loyalty, where they expressed their appreciation to the wise leadership the UAE enjoyed and witnessed under his reign.
