November 9, 2021
The Mapping Touristic Sites in Bani-Kenanah Workshop, held between 14 and 28 October, aimed at increasing local community organizations’ role in promoting cultural and natural heritage sites in Jordan.
During the preparation phase of the worksop, RESMYLE team in Jordan held multiple meetings with representatives of community organizations in Bani-Kenanah district to discuss the benefit of the workshop to the local community. This meeting created the opportunity to co-design the workshop through collaborative efforts with community members from Kharja, Saham, Kofr Soum, and Aqraba villages.
The RESMYLE international workshop in Jordan highlighted the importance of incorporating local communities and social organizations in the development and implementation of RESMYLE activities. The process followed by JUST reinforced the necessity and benefits of including the voice of the community in all stages of the workshop.
The workshop is part of RESMYLE project– Rethinking employment and social inclusion of Mediterranean youth through sustainable development – funded by the European Union’s ENI CBC MED programme.
