Schema partners with New Think Festival to encourage Social Responsibility in Jordan
Amman, Jordan, 16 June 2013
As a leader in sustainability and social responsibility advisory services in the region, and as part of its role to advocate and raise awareness on social responsibility and sustainability, Schema actively participated at the New Think Festival this year as a content partner, through its Social Responsibility “Kitchen”. The festival was held on 15 and 16 June 2013 starting, at the Cultural Village – Al Hussein Parks.
With the theme of “Cooking Ideas”, the festival this year was arranged into 13 specialised kitchens, discussing new thoughts and ways of thinking and innovation. Schema hosted a number of distinguished speakers and presenters, social activists, and socially-wired business people who engaged with the audience of the Social Responsibility Kitchen. Topics varied from what was our grandparents’ mind set like, how to be responsible towards natural and human resources, think tanks to engage with the audience, the audience interviewing and challenging business men, and much more.
The New Think Festival concept is based on the strong believe that human capital is one of the most important resources we have in Jordan; as such, the content of the festival is designed in a way to present and share new thoughts, innovative ways of thinking, and personal and corporate experiences, to inspire the audience to start thinking and acting differently towards a better life.
