Rand Alkhushman

When Rand was 14, she developed an interest in environmental issues and youth engagement in general. She was a part of a recycling project that raised awareness among individuals, especially young people, in her community about the importance of recycling. Following that, she decided that she wanted to pursue a career in the environmental field and went on to get her bachelor’s degree in Water & Environmental Engineering.

She did a lot of volunteer work relevant to her subjects of interest, which include youth, climate change, and women’s empowerment, during her bachelor’s journey.

This adventure is still ongoing for Rand, as she is working to raise awareness about climate change issues in Jordan. As part of this mission, she is currently the program coordinator for a STEM and Green Lab program with IREX as well as the leader of the Youth4Climate Initiative, a collaboration between ActionAid Arab Region, Drabzeen, and Global Platform.
