Throughout the day visitors will enjoy tasty foods and beverages as well as live music, comedy, shopping and raffles. Exhibits and sales of local crafts and recycled handmade products will also be offered.
The ultimate goal of the campaign is to raise awareness among the Jordanian population and educate the community about caring for the environment and the importance of recycling.
“The Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts Park/ El-Weibdeh can be used as a ‘model’ park for others to follow”, said organizer and president of Monaco Business Development, Mona Naffa. ”The guidelines designed and used for Jordanian public spaces and the sustainable use of solar panels, water conservation plants, recycle bins and management, embraces the environmental theme of “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle”.
