Aqaba, Jordan's southernmost city is located on the northeastern tip of the Red Sea and surrounded by desert and mountains. It is a paradise for diving and snorkeling with its Red Sea beaches just up the coast from the Aqaba Marine Park with coral reefs and an abundance of marine life. Aqaba is a charming coastal city just across the border from Israel's Beach resort destination Eilat. Both Tel Aviv and Jerusalem are a four hour drive away. Jordan's major tourist attraction like the worldfamous UNESCO World Heritage Site Petra and Wadi Rum are just two hours, the capitol Amman 4 hours away. With an average temperature of 20.5°C in January and an 18-hole Greg Norman championship course, ranked among world’s top three eco-friendly golf courses, this is one event you don't want to miss. Join us and tee off for a safer and more tolerant world and support our Grid of Light, spreading awareness for solutions to mass migration that can be implemented around the world.
There are about 2 million Syrian refugees in Jordan alone, putting humongous pressure on its infrastructure. Desperation, violence and poverty have forced the largest mass migration in the history of mankind. 650 million people are living in extreme poverty, another 25 million facing floods, droughts and famine due to climate change. More than 70,8 million people have been forcibly displaced by persecution, conflict, violence or human rights violations. 12% of the world’s people live in conflict zones, 420 million of those are children. 142 million of these children live in high-intensity war zones, in which they get killed, used as strategic military tactic and recruited as child soldiers. In 2018 over 140,000 people died in armed conflicts and more than 4,000 migrants die en route each year. PLeace Awaken is putting together an international panel of experts and individuals with hands-on experience that have different solution approaches to the challenges that countries and governments face in these difficult times like safe routes to sanctuary, repatriation, integration, resettlement, human trafficking and uncontrolled migration. Let's go and make that difference! PLeace G.O.L.F. Jordan !
