Harvesting the Sun Twice - Cross-Border Initiatives for Environmental Peacebuilding/Shahar Sadeh
Cross-Border Initiatives for Environmental Peacebuilding
A TED-inspired event
Tuesday March 29, 2011
All human beings own a common treasure which is the source for life -- the sun. Sometimes it is too hot but always it is the source for agriculture and food, fun and pleasure and the best potential supplier of alternative energy.
And guess what - it is free! At least for the time being...
The Forum for Environment and Regional Sustainability at The Van Leer Jerusalem Institute, headed by Dr. Sarah Ozacky-Lazar, believes that the environment is a vehicle to promote cooperation and peace between neighbors and aims at creating bonds between all residents in the Middle East through their common cross-border environmental interests.
In the conference "Harvesting the Sun Twice -- Cross Border Initiatives for Environmental Peacebuilding" some of the Forum's 2011 projects were presented to the broad public.
