Friends of the Arava Institute
October 23, 2009
In my capacity as Director of Marketing for the Overseas Student program at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, I have had extensive contact and cooperation with many Jewish Non-Profit organizations and I must say that the goals, message and methods of the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies is truly an inspirational leader in the areas most important too facing the challenges of the future of not only the Land itself, but if all the peoples who must learn to cooperate to insure a healthy future for generations to come.
The integration of conflict resolution through solving environmental challenges is a brilliant and most relevant concept and should and must be supported in every way possible. AIES is an inspiration to those of us who see a larger picture for the future of the cooperation of diverse peoples respecting each other and the world they all occupy together.
