El-Ayoun Living Lab

The El-Ayoun Living Lab is part of the project ‘Middle East Partnership for Productive Landscapes – MEPROLAND’. Within this DAAD-funded framework, we develop an integrated community management supporting the economic, social and environmental innovation of the villages surrounding the Ajloun Reserve in Jordan. This process is led by the Royal Society for the Conservaton of Nature (RSCN).

The El-Ayoun Living Lab provides an authentic learning context for young academics and students. The landscape and people of El-Ayoun represent a concrete system context that needs to be understood from various prespectives. We combine multiple methods to advance our shared understanding of this context as a basis for community activiation and sustainable local change.
