The Arava Institute as a Case Study

The Arava Institute is an environmental and academic institution in the Middle East, dedicated to preparing future leaders from Israel, Palestine, Jordan, and around the world (a study abroad option for college students from the United States) to cooperatively solve the regional and global challenges of our time, advancing cross-border environmental cooperation regardless of political conflict while advancing cross-border environmental discourse in the Middle East.

He will share two decades of experience with the Institute.
