Doha, Qatar (CNN) – Doha, off the back of its hydrocarbon wealth, is booming.

Dozens of landmark projects are feeding the construction industry and the Emir of Qatar, HH Sheikh Hamad, is determined to manage the country’s growth and create a sustainable long term plan.

He is investing in education, innovation and culture under the umbrella of his government’s cultural arm, The Qatar Foundation.

In this episode of Future Cities, CNN's Richard Quest explores Education City, a collection of eight international universities which is at the core of Qatar’s plans to become a seat of learning in the Middle East.

    For uprighting the shipwreck Costa, why can't you just place large balloons after water is piped out of the holes and naturally have it buoyed up on the side that is under water? Wouldn't that minimize the strain and the possibility of further damage to the boughs?

    WHAT WOULD THE SLAVE CHILDREN IN THE IVORY COAST AND GHANA DO IF THERE WERE NO COCOA PLANTATIONS? DO THEY HAVE AN ADEQUATE SCHOOL SYSTEM WHERE THEY CAN LEARN ALTERNATIVE SKILLS? I THINK NOT. AT LEAST THEY ARE BEING USED TO IMPROVE THE ECONOMY OF THEIR COUNTRY AND THEN PERHAPS THE UN OR SIMILAR ORGANISATION COULD LEGISLATE IN FAVOUR OF FAIR AND GAINFUL EMPLOYMENT FINANCED BY THE PLANTATIONS
