Country: Jordan
Implemented by Med Dialogue Fellow: Rand Al-Khushman
Organization: Green Community for Jordan
Duration: 12-21 June 2020

The awareness-raising activity focuses on promoting better agricultural practices and involving a greater number of citizens in environmental action, particularly in Amman and Maan governorates. It is led by the Med Dialogue Fellow, Rand Al-Khushman in partnership with Al-Ahliyya Amman University, SALAAM, Green 4 Jo Team, and Liwan Space and targets around 300 college students and 1000 citizens of both cities. The action aims to increase residents’ sense of responsibility towards their surroundings, by focusing on healthy agricultural practices, such as water-saving irrigation methods and how to safely and cleanly dispose of agricultural wastes in cooperation with the Ministry of Health. Both men and women will be provided with the necessary information on the negative effects of climate change. The campaign is expected to be raising the number of people who believe in and care about environmental issues in Jordan, and increasing the role of youth leaders in addressing climate change.

Key Activities:
  • Conducting awareness sessions with public participation on climate change and recycling
  • Organizing a social media campaign
  • Directly engaging people on the street through the project's ambassadors
  • Showcasing induction videos
