The German Cultural Institute (Goethe) continues its activities within the framework of its project “Entrepreneurship in School Practices in Jordan” funded by the German Foreign Ministry for the third year in a row, as the Institute was one of the most important participants in the Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW 2021), during which the Institute organized 17 workshops in the field of entrepreneurship in all the schools partnering in the project (Al Assriya Schools, Islamic Educational College, Jubilee School, The Ahliyyah School for Girls and Bishop’s School Amman for Boys, Al-Saadah College Schools and The Baptist School) where more than 700 students participated in the workshops.
The topics of the workshops were selected in coordination with the partnering schools and included the following topics: the basics of entrepreneurship, marketing, how to become an effective entrepreneur in your community, design thinking and e-business. The students learned about the personal skills that entrepreneurs must have and how entrepreneurship contributes to finding solutions to develop and improve the society.
“The goal behind teaching the students entrepreneurship is not just for them to be aware of it and establish profitable projects, but rather to acquire entrepreneurial skills such as problem solving, creative thinking, team work, analyzing and developing ideas, thinking outside the box and building a generation that faces the society’s challenges as an active member and contributes to overcoming and solving them in a sustainable way.” said Laura Hartz, the Director of the Goethe-Institute Jordan.
It is worth mentioning that by organizing these events in schools within the framework of the Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW 2021), the German Cultural Institute (Goethe) was recognized and honered as one of the most important partners during the closing ceremony of the GEW 13th edition that is annually organzied by the Queen Rania Center for Entrepreneurship (QRCE) at Princess Sumaya University for Technology. The closing ceremony was held under the patronage of Her Royal Highness Princess Sumaya bint El Hassan.
