The Qatari capital, Doha, is preparing to host a major TEDinArabic event in March at which 16 change-makers from across the Arab world will present their innovative and inspiring ideas.
The speakers will be chosen through a “Share Your Ideas with TEDinArabic” platform, which was introduced during a TEDinArabic regional event in Jordan in June.
TEDinArabic is a joint initiative of Qatar Foundation and the TED conference. It was launched two years ago with the aim of celebrating the Arabic language and promoting its use and relevance in the world.
The TEDinArabic gathering in June at Jordan’s Al Hussein Technical University was the project’s second regional event. The first was held last December during the 2021 WISE Summit. The WISE Summit is an international initiative of Qatar Foundation that brings together a network of education stakeholders who share ideas and collaborate to solve challenges facing education.
Arabs Are Part of an Evolving World
Zeinab Ibrahim, a teaching professor of Arabic studies at Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar, stressed the significance of TEDinArabic.
