The British Embassy in Amman is launching a month-long campaign titled “The United Kingdom in Jordan” to celebrate and highlight the importance of inclusion in all its forms. Over the course of this month, the British Embassy and the British Council will promote inclusion in Jordan in a range of areas, including gender equality, youth participation and the inclusion of people with disabilities.
During this campaign, British Ambassador Bridget Print will reach out to various partners to support equality and inclusion as a key part of the design and delivery of UK programs and policies with her Jordanian and international counterparts.
The UK Inclusion Campaign in Jordan will consist of a range of events to promote inclusion, including in the fields of education, economy, defence, diplomacy and the environment.
The ambassador will visit Irbid to meet with refugees, youth and representatives of the private sector, with the aim of highlighting the importance of achieving economic prosperity and stability in Jordan. It will host a reception for young Jordanians who have won the prestigious Chevening Scholarship. The British Embassy and the British Council will promote the importance of English language learning opportunities for refugees and marginalized people through the British Council’s online training, and the Council’s support for people with disabilities through its Art for All programme.
Earlier this summer, Ambassador Print launched the British Embassy’s first External Advisory Group on Gender and Social Inclusion. As the Council for Gender Equality and Social Inclusion brings together top experts, it acts as an advisory board for the British Embassy, ensuring that gender equality and social inclusion are at the forefront of its work in Jordan.
The British Ambassador said: “I am delighted to be launching the UK Campaign for Inclusion in Jordan. Inclusion is about prioritizing diversity and empowering everyone to participate for the good of society, regardless of gender, race, religion or age. It is clear evidence that inclusion is happening. From innovation to stability and economic growth. A positive difference is reflected in the aspects, and I am convinced that the more we are interested in inclusion, the better results we will all achieve, whether they are economic, social, political, security, environmental, development or health outcomes, or results related to human well-being and his health. .
