AGIAMONDO is the personnel service of the German Catholics for Development Cooperation. In the Civil Peace Service (CPS) we offer development workers a meaningful role working with local development agents. The CPS is a personnel programme for peace-building and the prevention of violence in crisis and conflict regions. It sets out to promote a world in which conflicts are settled without violence. Working with church-related and civil-social partner organisations in Jordan, AGIAMONDO aims to make a contribution towards civil conflict management and the sustainable and equitable development of the country through peace-building measures.

Your new role
Jordan and the surrounding countries are suffering from a severe shortage of natural resources. The scarcity of resources and environmental degradation are serving to increase social tensions between the Jordanian population, refugees and other minorities.
EcoPeace ME is a regional organization that is part of an international network bringing together Jordanian, Palestinian and Israeli environmentalists. The organization works with people of different backgrounds, religions and cultures. In the Middle East, it brings together Christians, Muslims and Jews to work for environmental protection and sustainable access to resources for everyone in the region. EcoPeace ME projects focus on cross-border environmental issues, water security, sanitation and renewable energy, and address youth, local communities, decision makers, the private sector and the international community. In particular, it is intended to address pupils, young people, teachers and young entrepreneurs who can act as active members and multipliers of an environmentally conscious society. They are to be trained, enabled and encouraged to take steps towards sustainable development and peacebuilding. EcoPeace ME trains selected groups who have the potential to act as multipliers to create a network of young leaders and professionals, who work together to advance solutions to reduce the waste that threatens the marine life and biodiversity of the Red Sea.
