The Arava Institute for Environmental and Peace Studies (AIES) is taking groundbreaking strides in the areas that truly need the most attention and resources: the environment and peace. The two go hand in hand. I was a student at the Arava institute for one year. During this time I learned so much by being immersed in the carefully structured and diverse curriculum, including sitting with a group of internationally diverse students and engaging in discussions that address many difficult issues. For me, the joint projects and collaborations between Arab and Israeli graduates of the Institute is the 'proof in the pudding'.
