A team of journalists and members of the press will take a field trip to some of the most relevant tourist sites in Jordan on Saturday 5th of September 2020. The tour will include the city of Aqaba, which is one of the destinations involved in the CROSSDEV project thanks to the effort of local partner JREDS, The Royal Marine Conservation Society of Jordan. Approximately 24 journalists will take part in the tour with the aim of spreading news about archeological and touristic sites.

During the visit, journalists will be briefed in detail about the CROSSDEV project not only in Jordan but also in the other 3 countries of implementation: Italy, Lebanon and Palestine.
