Her Majesty Queen Noor Al Hussein opened on July 12nd, 2010 at the Palace of Culture at Al Hussein Sports City in Amman the International Arab Children’s Congress (IACC) under the theme “Safeguarding our Environment”.

During the opening ceremony, Queen Noor was accompanied by Lebanese singer Nancy Ajram and Jordanian actor Musa Hijazeen as guests of honor. The opening ceremony featured a dance performance and music by the Brass Band of the Jordanian Armed Forces.

During the week-long conference, 150 participants between the ages of 14 and 16 will discuss the impact of pollution and global warming on public health, the economy and social development, in addition to alternative energy and the application of green building practices to protect the environment.

This year the congress is celebrating its 30th anniversary. Queen Noor initiated the congress following the 1980 Arab summit in Amman, with the goal of giving children between the ages of 14 and 16 the opportunity to express their needs and aspirations and to be heard by decision makers in the Arab world.

    Good on you,Queen Noor and may God bless you for such a beneficial conference

  2. We wrote to Queen Noor in September 2009 hoping to participate in the annual conference, but did not receive any respponse. We are hoping that perhaps next year, organizers might consider having the participants paint a collaborative mural on canvas aligned with the theme of the conference. Please see http://artmiles.org and think about how wonderful it would be to add a visual voice of conferenc proceedings to this great opportunity hosted by Queen Noor in the future…a lasting legacy…JTawfilis
