HSBC and Potential.com launch third edition of Tatawwar across MENA
HSBC and Potential.com have launched the third edition of its future skills flagship programme, Tatawwar, for students across the UAE, Egypt, Oman, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, and Algeria. The interactive online and face-to-face programme brings together students aged 15 to 18, schools, parents and the business community to innovate for a sustainable future by addressing the three United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) including climate action, human health and well-being and clean water and sanitation
Tatawwar, which is translated to “to develop” in English, encourages students to develop core future skills in innovative design thinking, financial literacy, critical thinking, and entrepreneurship. It raises awareness of how business can help address social and environmental problems in their community through innovation.
Sabrin Rahman, Regional Head of Sustainability, HSBC Middle East, North Africa and Turkey, pointed out, “Ensuring every student has the opportunity to build the core future skills they need to thrive in tomorrow’s global economies, while building awareness of how business can help address social and environmental concerns, is fundamental to our approach. Tatawwar embodies that, and we are very proud to roll-out this great initiative to students, parents and schools again by building on the great success of the programme over the last two years.”
Students can now register for the programme at www.tatawwar.com. Schools, parents, NGOs and any other partners who would also like to participate in empowering the next generation of social innovators are also invited to get in touch through the website.
