AMMAN — The concluding conference of the “SHABAB 2250” project related to the UN Security Council’s adoption of the resolution 2250 on youth, peace and security is set to kick off on Monday, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

Organised by I-Dare for Sustainable Development, the ceremony will be held under the patronage of the government coordinator for human rights and attended by EU ambassador to Jordan with the aim of reviewing the recommendations achieved by the project over the past one-and-a-half-years with regard to raising awareness on the resolution 2250 among youth and stakeholders 

Resolution 2250 on Youth, Peace and Security, which was adopted in December 2015 following HRH Crown Prince Hussein’s speech as the chair of the United Nations Security Council meeting in 2015, aimed at fostering the youth participation in building and maintaining societal peace.

I-Dare General Manager Iyad Jaber said that the 12 sessions were held in various governates across the Kingdom to introduce the project, witnessing the attendance of 449 male and female participants.

The organisation also launched an online awareness campaign on the resolution 2250 and the importance of its implementation, Jaber said, adding that the the project’s Facebook page reached out to nearly one million users as the organisation created more than 100 media items varying between info-graphics, short videos, and long Arabic articles, which were also published on its alternative platform www.idareact.org

I-Dare for Sustainable Development is a non-profit and non-governmental Jordanian organisation, established in October 2013. The core of I-Dare actions is based on social marketing from early stages of idea development to the successful achievement of the desired impact, according to the organisation’s website.
