The Middle East & North Africa Youth Leadership Jam (MENA Jam) Cooperation Circle (CC) is a network of diverse young and enthusiastic change-makers who are engaged and committed leaders from across the MENA region—Palestine, Egypt, Jordan, Israel, United Arab Emirates, Tunisia, Lebanon, Algeria, Pakistan, Afghanistan, India and Iraq.
Members are active in movements for sustainability, peace, interfaith dialogue, the environment, human rights, women's rights, social justice, refugee support, and trauma recovery. All members of the MENA Jam CC have shared the same deep and powerful experience of participating in or facilitating a 7 day intensive Jam, and are interested in carrying this work forward in the MENA region.
This CC creates a unique space for deep listening, sharing, self-discovery, systemic inquiry and community building. It allows for authentic dialogue about each participant's struggles and dreams, and about the challenges and opportunities facing the region through the eyes of individual stories and experiences.
