Jordan is discussing the new Sustainable Development Goals الأردن يناقش الأهداف العالمية للتنمية المستدامة


It is exciting for me to witness the growing interest from Jordanians around the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) especially from civil society organizations.

In the past weeks, I was honored to meet dozens of community leaders and professionals from various sectors and governorates in Jordan through three sessions organized by GEF/Small Grants Program (SGP) and another by Jordan Green Building Council (Jordan GBC). The interest and deep discussion showed in all of those sessions reflect genuine commitment by Jordanians to sustainable development principles and concepts. While the level of awareness and knowledge varies from one location/entity/sector to the other, we all share the worries and concerns as well as the hopes of development locally and globally.

I hope that those who participate in the awareness sessions would carry on the mission and spread the word to many others in their communities and circles and hopefully we will take this to another level of action very soon.

I’m proudly volunteering to provide such support as a Plus Social Good Connector and a global citizen. Contact me if you are interested in hosting a session.

Here is a special presentation SDGs Arabic Session for GBC linking SDGs to Jordan’s sustainable development path and triggering some questions on how we can be part of the movement.

تشرفت خلال الاسابيع الماضية بلقاء مجموعة رائعة من مؤسسات المجتمع المدني وقادة العمل المجتمعي والبيئي من خلال اريعة جلسات توعوية حول الأهداف الجديدة للتنمية المستدامة. عقدت ثلاثة من هذه الجلسات بالتعاون مع برنامج المنح الصغيرة والرابعة مع المجلس الأردني للأبنية الخضراء. ‘لى الرغم من تفاوت الوعي والمعرفة بتفاصيل الأهداف الا اننا في الأردن نعكس اهتماما اصيلا بمبادئ التنمية المستدامة وأتمنى أن ننتقل الى مرحلة العمل على الأهداف من خلال مؤسساتنا وفي القطاعات والمحافظات المختلفة.

يشرفني ان اقدم مثل هذه الجلسات التوعوية لمن يرغب من الجهات المهتمة بالتنمية المستدامة بدون مقابل كجزء من عضويتي في شبكة العطاء الاجتماعي وكمواطنة عالمية.
