MedRiSSE in Jordan fosters social innovation among local actors in Jordan


On February 2, 2023, a National Strategic Event took place in the city of Amman (Jordan) with almost 45 stakeholders on social initiatives. The event was developed by The Jordanian Hashemite Fund for Human Development (JOHUD), one of the seven partners that make up the MedRiSSE partnership.

Participants of the session were working together during the session in order to develop their social initiatives by putting together concepts, ideas and obstacles faced in their daily activities. The session was dinamised by JOHUD along with Oxfam Quebec to help local and national actors to solve doubts and boost their projects on social innovation.

At the same time, ACPP as Lead Beneficiary of the project presented to the participants the collaborative tools that are developed under the MedRiSSE project and more precisely the Widened Community of Practice and the Wiki on social innovation, in which the participants can have access to learning material and toolkits as for example the 5 Scalability Roadmaps and the Mediterranean Replication toolkit. These digital instruments, presented in the event by Action Research for Co-Development (ARCO) from the University of Florence, Italy will bring to all stakeholders best ways to adapt successful practices from previous ENI CBC Med projects into their national realities.

National Strategic Events as this one, bring guidance and support to the stakeholders to boost their projects and help them to connect with other innovators and best practices from both sides of the Mediterranean to create a more collaborative, social and competitive societies.
