Our partners, strategic location, and extensive networks are key to the success of Amman Design Week. We are always looking for partners that share our vision of fostering a design community and supporting local talent. Feel free to contact us at info@ammandesignweek.com for further information.

Strategic Partner

Greater Amman Municipality

The first municipal council of Amman was founded in 1909, when the city’s population was between 2,000 and 4,000. Since then this body has grown with the city, adapting to fit the developing needs of the population. The Greater Amman Municipality now employs some 23,000 people, headed by Mayor Akel Biltaji. In the past century, the municipality’s mission has consistently been to provide high-quality municipal services and encourage urban development, while balancing the historic authenticity of this ancient city with its aspirations for modernity.

In the past century, the Greater Amman Municipality has adopted various initiatives that aim to improve the quality of life for local communities. These include studies to improve road safety and infrastructure, public transport, maintenance and development of historic, touristic and recreational sites, and the development of sustainable solutions for waste management and procurement of resources.


Education Partner


INJAZ was founded in 1999 as a project under Save the Children, a USAID-funded programme. In 2001, INJAZ became an independent, nonprofit Jordanian organization. Since then, INJAZ has established itself as a leading solution provider, linking the public, private and civil society sectors to bridge the skills gap between the educational system and the labour market.

INJAZ’s programs address the needs of young Jordanians to complement the education and training provided by educational institutions. These projects develop the vital skills necessary to be competitive job candidates and entrepreneurs. Over the years, INJAZ has developed its own programs in consultation with experts and collaborated with international development organizations to bring new, high-impact programs to Jordan. INJAZ has been consistently successful in achieving high rates of female participation in its programs – female students make up more than 60 per cent of beneficiaries at the school and university level each year.
