The 14 October marked the day of the start of the first international field training program for NEETs people (Not in Education, Employment or Training) in Jordan.

The two-week workshop, entitled Mapping touristic sites in Bani-Kenanah: Promoting tourism activities in villages in Northern Jordan is organized by the Jordan University in Science and Technology (JUST), partner of RESMYLE project. NEET participants include 12 young people: 9 from Jordan, 2 from Tunisia and 1 from France.

The objective of this workshop is to evaluate the tourism potential of four villages in the district: Kharja, Saham, Quelibeh and Kufr Som, and Aqraba villages.

During the next few days, participants will conduct extensive field visits to each of the villages, interact with the local people, participate in diverse tourist activities, and develop preliminary action plans to help rural communities develop their tourism potential.

The workshop is part of the RESMYLE project – Rethinking employment and social inclusion of Mediterranean youth through sustainable development – funded by the ENI CBC MED programme of the European Union.
