CAIRO – 14 November 2017: The eighth edition of the World Science Forum comes for the first time to the Arab World, held in Jordan, with soprano Zeina Barhoum having been part of the opening ceremony on November 7.
Running until November 11, the World Science Forum leads on the global dialogue for science and its social & economic relevance. With an aim to help spread real positive change in society, the World Science Forum seeks to be a platform that can allow both the science community and policy makers to come together and discuss. The current theme for this year is "Science for Peace."
The current edition will be held at the King Hussein bin Talal Convention Centre at the Dead Sea. Over 3,000 scientists, leaders and politicians from 120 countries attended the opening ceremony, where Barhoum performed.
A classically trained soprano, Barhoum was at the forefront of this year’s Amman Opera Festival, which proved to be an unprecedented success and will be returning for a second round next year in fall.
