Review for Friends of the Arava Institute, Boston, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The strongest learning for me was the to understand the extraordinary hurdles that the participants had to clear to pusue their ideals. With the threat of isolation from their own families and friends they pursued the participation in the programme. This gives me hope in the uture for the region. this programme is fostering the foundations of the stability in the region. The fabric of the leaders of the future is being interwoven. There is clarity that more will be achieved through cooperation and mutual respect in this complex political and enirnmental regional crossroads.

There is a huge global media industry looking for stories. Strategic coverage of the stories from the institute like that the appeared on CNN and for example I attended a function with the 2 of the alumni in Australia. Jewish schools should be visited.

Ways to make it better...

Emphasise the importance of preparitory training and fitness.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the difficulty in getting the message out to the broader communities throughout the region and globally. reinforce the interdependence all the countries have in their environmentall activities.
