“Let’s Rise with Our Language” Project
The project was created by the Arab Thought Foundation (ATF) to promote and advance the Arabic language and prevent its falling into disuse. The project brought together academics, scholars, and experts to develop a vision for the future of Arabic in all fields, in hopes that the vision will garner due patronage and support from top-level political leaders and eventually inspire educational and cultural decision-makers in the Arab region to undertake the necessary measures.
The “Let’s Rise with Our Language” project is founded on a field study featuring nine opinion polls consisting of 265 questions conducted in eleven Arab countries: Egypt, Jordan, KSA, Lebanon, Mauritania, Morocco, Palestine, Qatar, Syria, Tunisia, and Yemen. Recommendations were formulated based on the findings and presented in the “Let’s Rise with Our Language” Declaration on November 25, 2012, in Dubai, UAE.
