El Hassan Science City (EHSC) participated in the Global Thinkers Forum, which convened in Amman, as part of its mission to support the economic and social development in Jordan as well as promoting the concept of sustainable development.
Her Highness pointed out that the EHSC is seeking through its various programmes to develop entrepreneurship among women in Jordanian society, by helping to build confidence and spirit of achievement in women.
The Princess added "As we face our greatest ever existential challenges, it is time to consign discriminatory attitudes to the dustbin of history, and to acknowledge that women offer vast potential to create prosperity and to transmit education, ambition and hope to the next generation."
In conclusion, the Princess urged intellectual and scientific institutions to provide the opportunity for different members of society to benefit from the opportunities offered by science and technology, and stressed that science is capable of positive change in our minds to build our country and achieve sustainable development.
