The Israeli environment school, the Arava Institute, works to train young Israelis – Jews and Arabs alike – on developing a sustainable Middle East. Its graduates are going out into the world and making a big difference, for the environment and in politics.
It’s the first model to bring Arabs and Jews together on behalf of the environment.
Palestinians, Jordanians and Egyptians are also learning through the Arava, although not always openly. It’s considered bad for politics (in their communities) for Arabs to study with Israelis, so they tend to keep their training to themselves.
