Jordan: EU-funded CROSSDEV rewards its Ramadan Competition winners
June 9, 2021
The Royal Marine Conservation Society of Jordan (JREDS) – CROSSDEV project’s partner for southern Jordan – launched its Ramadan Competition 2021 on social media last April, asking youth, students and the general public one question a day for 30 days about tourism, culture, heritage, and marine life around Aqaba, Jordan.
The competition had a great resonance on social media platforms, with over 1,500 students participating to the contest from all governorates of Jordan. And the winners have already been awarded! 60 students – 30 males and 30 females – from all across Jordan and aged 5 to 24, received hand-made prizes.
The objective of the CROSSDEV project is to contribute to the economic and social development in Mediterranean. It is co-funded by the European Union through the ENI CBC MED Programme.
CROSSDEV strengthens and enhances sustainable tourism practices, emphasizing common heritage and resources. Specifically, the project intends to increase touristic competitiveness and attractiveness of less-known destinations and rural/depressed areas, adopting the Cultural Routes concept in selected areas of 4 countries: Italy, Jordan, Lebanon and Palestine.
