The young delegates also engaged with the local communities through voluntary work and visits to the historical sites of Ajloun Castle and Jerash where they experienced Jordan’s rich heritage and culture. The International Arab Youth Congress, was initiated by Her Majesty Queen Noor in 1980, to promote understanding, tolerance, and solidarity. It is the longest uninterrupted cultural gathering of youth that gives Arab youth a platform and voice to address a range of regional and global challenges.
