لماذا لا نتخاطب باللغة العربية الفصحى في حياتنا اليومية؟

هل لأننا نعجز عن ذلك؟

أم لأننا لانرى الضرورة؟

أم لأننا غير ملزمين؟ 

هل تقتصر علاقتنا باللغة العربية الفصحى على الرسوم المتحركة والمقررات الدراسية؟ 

لماذا يتلعثم بعضنا عند محاولة الحوار بالعربية ولماذا يتفاداها الكثيرون؟

.لهجاتنا العامية جميلة ومتنوعة ولكن لغتنا العربية مشتركة و ثرية

 هل لاعتزالنا عن ممارسة الفصحى تأثير سلبي ام ايجابي على علاقتنا بالثقافة العربية؟

.لنتحدث باللغة العربية الفصحى وان كان ذلك لفترةوجيزة

نقوم بعقد جلسات شهرية للتخاطب باللغة العربية الفصحى

why we exist?

a social enterprise exists because of the need to address a social issue. it can help sustain itself through revenue generation, but profit is not the reason it came into being.

every community has its issues. in order to be cognizant of them, we prompt ourselves with questions.

what do we do?

the one thing we like to do on a regular basis is to get members of the community to talk about things we don’t usually talk about.

we engage one another in conversations to understand why we do what we do and if there is anything that can be done about it.

where are we headed?

we may think that we cannot change anything about the world but we all do something or another with our lives.

every conversation we have, and every electronic message we dispatch aims to have a positive impact. you do your part, and we do ours.

how long will it take?

if we do things the way they have always been done, what is the point?

addressing social issues is a process, a journey that is not defined by country borders, and we’re in it together, however long it takes.

how do we make money?

to sustain our operations we currently offer hospitality services through our partners.

we are also always looking to partner with businesses who like what we do and would like to host our discussions within their workspace or event space.

who do we employ?

we are always on the look out for local talent. we remunerate our interns and have a flexible working environment.

if you like what we do and want to work with us, please get in touch.

life in plastic, is it fantastic?

 

did you shower this morning (no judgment)?

your shampoo or shower gel probably came in a plastic container.

or did it not?

in a mug, please!

 

do you think twice about ordering coffee in a disposable paper cup?

do you recycle your used cup? apparently, even if you toss it in the recycling bin, it will end up in a landfill.

 

time is money, or is it?

 

many of us are obligated to “spend” a certain number of hours doing something we’re getting “paid” to do.

what do you spend your money on?

intolerance, is it ok?

 

do you notice cigarette butts everywhere or have you become oblivious to them?

did you know they are not biodegradable?

un-packaging

 

ah the euphoria that comes with unpacking something you just bought. are we ready to go package-free?

can we do away with “unnecessary” packaging?

incentive

 

did you know that electric and hybrid cars existed for a while?

are the designated parking spots for eco-friendly vehicles in your building vacant or occupied by the petrol guzzling variety?

convenience

 

do you drink from disposable plastic? have you tried not to? if you have to go out of your way, would you?

when you order take out at home do you accept plastic cutlery?

 

the need for speed

 

have you considered driving at the minimum speed limit on the highway?does it take a traffic jam to slow you down?

are you always late or perfectly on time?
