The Dialogue Project
Beyond Borders: Environmental Cooperation in Israel and Palestine
From January – March 2018, Arava Institute alumni will be visiting universities and communities throughout the United States. They will speak about their experiences growing up in Israeli and Palestinian families, their decision to study environmental cooperation together at the Arava Institute, and answer any questions raised by members of your community.
The itinerary below is subject to change. Please contact Ari with questions about individual visits or events.
The Friends of the Arava Institute will also be hosting an alumni tour in fall 2018. Please contact Ari to book a date during the fall tour!
