UNIMED announces the Opening Webinar of the UNIMED SubNetwork on Mediterranean Tourism, which will be the first official meeting of the SubNetwork on Mediterranean Tourism and the occasion to get to know each other, learn more on what Universities do in the field of Tourism and jointly discuss the SubNetwork action plan for the upcoming months.

The topic of this SubNetwork is even more relevant now due to the COVID outbreak and its impacts on the Tourism sector and we think that it is time for the SubNetwork to come alive. UNIMED SubNetwork on Mediterranean Tourism promotes synergies, knowledge-exchange and partnerships among the involved Universities, supports policy dialogue and strengthens consultation in the Mediterranean, being one of the world tourism hot spots. The SubNetwork aims to engage university departments, academics, researchers, practitioners, technologists and specialists working in the field.

The EU Delegation to Jordan and the EU Neighbours South project are organising a virtual campus tour in Jordan called "Virtual Campus Tour #EU4YOUth Going Further Together!" on Sunday, 29 November 2020, from 9 am to 1 pm. The event is held under the #EU4YOUth regional communication campaign framework running in seven countries of the Southern Neighborhood region. The digital event aims to increase awareness and understanding of the EU-funded cooperation projects empowering youth in different fields.

As the EU invests massively to empower Jordanian youth, the event will cover three main thematic topics through panel discussions:

1. Entrepreneurship and Innovation

2. Green Deal

3. Education and Scholarship Mobility.

Each panel discussion will be followed by an intermission composed of a quiz, a film screening, a musical performance by the Jordanian band Autostrad, and a winner of RISE Talent Contest, a European Union in Jordan initiative. Answering the quizzes will likely allow youth to win laptops as educational prizes to support students. Youth can also win a prize by participating in the photo contest #ShootandShare: using the hashtags #EU4YOUth and #ShootandShare, post a picture capturing your DREAMS and ASPIRATIONS for yourself and Jordan.

Please find the program of the event in Arabic and English.
