Arava Institute Finalist of the Billion Acts of Peace Hero Award – VOTE now!

Peace Builds

The Arava Institute for Environmental Studies has been nominated for the Billion Acts Hero Award in the category Best University Act. One Billion Acts of Peace is a United Nations supported initiative lead by 13 Nobel Peace Prize winners, including the Dalai Lama, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Shirin Ebadi, with the goal of creating one billion acts of peace worldwide by 2019. The team at Billion Acts has chosen our work from millions of Acts that were logged worldwide.

The Billion Acts Hero Awards recognize exceptional projects and initiatives for peace. Ten semifinalists were chosen by the jury based on the reach and impact of each project, and five winners are then determined through public online voting. These five initiatives will be honored at the Hero Awards ceremony in Monte Carlo in June 2016, receiving a Hero Award from a Nobel Peace Laureate.
