(MENAFN - Jordan News Agency) Amman, Nov. 20 (Petra)--A memorandum of understanding was signed on Monday between Al Hussein Technical University (HTU) founded by the Crown Prince Foundation and Jordan Green Building Council as part of the two parties' efforts to develop new fields of cooperation in the areas of exchange of experiences, training and awareness.
The agreement which was signed at HTU campus in King Hussein Business Park, Amman, was signed by H.E. Prof. Labib Al Khadra; HTU President and Jordan GBC Chairman Eng. Abdullah Bdeir.
Al Khadra pointed out the importance of this collaboration, which will assist HTU students in developing a portfolio of advanced skills and knowledge in Green Architecture which enables them to become positive contributors to the sustainable development of the Kingdom and the region.
Bdeir stressed on the importance of empowering the young generation to practice their role as active members of the community through capitalizing on the latest Jordan GBC initiatives such as the Green Affordable Housing campaign and the empowerment of the solid waste management supply chain as part of the overall green infrastructure schemes given the responsibility of the building sector as a major consumer of resources such as water, energy and generation of solid waste.
Under the MoU, Jordan GBC will offer several training opportunities in the green building field to HTU students, conduct joint research efforts, and connect HTU's student with contractors and consulting firms in the green building sector.
The MoU will also open the door for graduates from other Jordanian universities along with practicing professionals to participate in specialized up-skilling training courses offered by Jordan GBC and in collaboration with HTU.
Jordan GBC is a non-profit Jordanian association founded in 2009. The council includes companies and experts from different fields of sectors related to design, supply, and construction of buildings. The Council has rehabilitated a large number of specialists in Jordan and in many Arab countries and works hand in hand with official institutions and ministries, trade unions and business associations to achieve national goals. Jordan GBC currently heads a network of 14 councils in 14 countries in the MENA region.
Al Hussein Technical University was founded in 2016 by the Crown Prince Foundation, as a technical university which offers bachelor's and intermediate degrees in Engineering and Computer Science.
