Young Cities Jordan Showcase event in Amman

On 11 May, Young Cities held its first Showcase event in Amman, Jordan, with the support of Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and local partner, the WANA Institute. Showcase events are a cornerstone of the Young Cities programme. They elevate young people as critical actors in addressing key community challenges, while providing an opportunity for them to connect with local, national and international leaders so that all groups can advance their mutual interests.

The Showcase in Jordan provided a platform for 15 young people who participated in the Young Cities programme to network and present the impact of their youth-led initiatives - addressing COVID-19 disinformation, cyberbullying, and the inclusion of people with disabilities - to 65 multi-sectoral stakeholders. The teams mixed formal presentations with interactive booths to share the innovative approaches they’ve taken, including using puppet theatre performances and organising art therapy trainings, to tackle the challenges affecting their community members.

Mayor of Zarqa and the WANA Institute stressed that the Young Cities Showcase event was an important reminder that young Jordanians are crucial to present and future efforts for peace and social cohesion.
