تتخذ مشاريع أي إيرن العديد من الأشكل، لكن معظمها تعود جذوره إلى المنهج التربوي الذي يتضمنه التعليم عبر المشروع، والتي تؤدي إلى مجموعة من "منتجات" التعاون النهائي أو نتائج مشروع كان جرى تبادلها بين المشاركين.

إلى جانب ربطه بين ما يتعلمه الطلاب والقضايا المحلية وضرورة التزامه بمناهج دراسية معينة ، فإنه على كل واحد من مشاريع أي إيرن، ، أن يجيب على السؤال التالي: "كيف يمكن لهذا المشروع أن يحسن نوعية الحياة على هذا الكوكب؟".

تضم مجموعة شركائنا في آسيا والشرق الأوسط على سبيل المثال لا الحصر ميرسي كوربس، آكشن آيد، كاير، منظمة الغوث والتعاون الإسلامية العالمية. كما تدعمنا مالياً منظمات مثل فودافون، اللجنة المنظمة لكأس العالم في قطر عام 2022، الاتحاد الآسيوي لكرة القدم، ومؤسسة الوليد بن طلال.

تقيم روتا عشاءين خيرين سنوياً من أجل جميع المزيد من التمويلات الضرورية للاستمرار في الأعمال التي تقوم بها في آسيا والشرق الأوسط، حيث تستضيف عدداً من الشخصيات الهامة والمشاهير من كل أنحاء العالم كي يستمتعوا بليلة من التسلية ويمنحوا العطاء من خلال أعمال الرعاية والمزادات العلنية والتبرعات.

حضر حفل العشاء الخيري السابق صاحب السمو الأمير الوليد بن طلال من السعودية، والرئيس الأميركي بيل كلينتون، الصحافي والمقدم التلفزيوني ريز خان، الممثل سير بين كينغسلي، المغني شير، رجل الإحسان سير بوب غيلدوف، والنبيل الملكي البريطاني دايفيد لينلي، المغني يوسف إسلام، الممثل جوش هارنت، والمحامية في المحكمة العليا وزوجة رئيس الوزراء البريطاني طوني بلير، تشيري بلير، على سبيل المثال لا الحصر أيضاً.

“ROTA’s 9th Annual Youth Conference on Personal Leadership, Service Learning and Global Citizenship”.


Dates: 2nd to 4th March 2017

Venue: Hamad Bin Khalifa University - Student Center in Qatar Foundation

 

EMPOWER 2017  The three days event includes a combination of seminar panel discussion, keynote speeches, small group workshops, seminars, off-site activities, exhibition, social programme and youth artistic expression.

Since 2009, EMPOWER has developed  a reputation for being the first youth led conference to focus on equipping young people in Qatar to take active roles in building their communities and having a voice on global issues.

Every year the conference intends to create a platform for a larger number of students to learn and engage in ROTA’s youth development program in Qatar. After the success of previous EMPOWERs, we opened the conference to the Region and youth from international countries. The conference addresses a variety of issues related Sustainable Development and will focus this year on Sustainable Tourism for Youth Development.

ROTA’s core strategy for promoting youth development in Qatar is to develop a network of youth service clubs within schools and universities throughout Qatar that are  geared  towards  equipping  and  enabling  young people as responsible global citizens and empowered young leaders. The Youth Conference, the RYSC leadership Training and the newly developed ROTA Youth Advisory Board are supplementary initiatives that support the RYSC program.

The program will aim to attract up to 450 young people between the ages of 16-30 including international participants. The main aim of the 3 days conference is to raise awareness and knowledge as well as build the capacities required to enable young people to take leadership roles in addressing local and international developmental issues of concern to them especially in the area Sustainable Tourism, as the theme for this year’s EMPOWER conference.

Power speech and Keynote speeches are intended to inspire, inform and mobilize our young delegates to act on the three learning themes of the conference. Panel discussion will be a platform to inform participants about the EMPOWER theme of that year. The workshops are aimed to be an interactive and discursive exchange between the participants and the facilitator. Seminar aims to provide participants with tools to run their projects and campaigns.

 

The Conference Objectives are to:

  • Promote better understanding of youth leadership, service learning and greater awareness of global issues among 450 youth between the ages of 16-30 in Qatar and the region.
     
  • Provide opportunities for 450 youth to develop their skills, knowledge and attitudes to take on leadership roles which support ROTA strategies.
     
  • Create a platform for 450 youth to discover their voice and realize their ability to make a positive contribution in society to support Qatar 2030 on youth development.
