4SITE Forum closed on Nov 18, 2009.... and was a great success and a great start on that journey. Participants came from Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Canada, and Dubai, with great discussions about a variety of topics. All info and the schedule are still up at www.4siteforum.com, and we are already working on next plans, and next steps... including 4SITE 2020, an exciting initiative to promote and support social innovation and social entrepreneurship throughout the WANA (West Asia/North Africa) region.
Videos of the speakers will be up soon... the last thing that remains to be said is a special thanks to all the partners, volunteers, speakers, and sponsors:
Baraka Group (UAE) was our key strategic partner in the initiative.
