Bushra initiated a Facebook page called “Let’s Shape Amman’s Future”, which gives the chance for the citizens of Amman/Jordan to shape the future identity of their city and evaluate recent transformations and developments. This forms an important step in educating citizens by positively using social media.

She believes that citizens should have the right, voice, and ability to evaluate these changes and assess their social and economic impacts; she welcomes everybody to join her page to know more about her city -Amman- and to exchange experiences with others.
