IP Summer Youth Camps

The Academy’s Creativity and Inventiveness summer camps and innovation hubs help youth to understand and obtain the keys to innovation by urging them to respect the IP rights of others. They typically comprise 3-days of training to empower out-of-the-box thinking, expose emerging issues such as digital disruption and AI, and demonstrate how creative, innovation and entrepreneurship are strongly linked with IP rights.

In August 2022, as part of the International Youth Day celebration, the Jordanian Ministry of Youth partnered with WIPO to organize Al Hussein Youth Camps. Sixty participants aged 15 to 17 experienced transformative eureka moments during interactive seminars on innovation, creativity, and intellectual property, marking a significant step towards fostering a culture of creativity in Jordan.

Additionally, the inclusion of local success stories from young entrepreneurs with IP protection, in partnership with the Jordan River Foundation, served to inspire and motivate the participants towards entrepreneurial endeavors.
