Coexistence and the Environment

Thursday, September 22, 2016

7 p.m. – 9 p.m.

Joukowsky Forum

"Coexistence and the Environment" is an event intended to bring to Brown a new perspective in regards to the Israeli- Palestinian conflict. The Arava Institute, one of the leading environmental science institutes in the Middle East that allows both Israelis, Palestinians, Jordanians, and Americans to seek a degree together, is providing two featured alumni to discuss how coexistence is not only possible but achievable. The alumni, one Palestinian and one Israeli, both currently hold positions in their respective countries that are a result of their time at the Institute.

Please join the Brown Students for Israel in an evening of lecture and discussion about an institution that is making a real difference on the ground, not only in the innovations that have come about from the research conducted, but also the lessons learned in how partnerships across arbitrary borders is possible.

"Here, the idea that nature knows no political borders is more than a belief. It is a fact, a curriculum, and a way of life." – Arava Institute Motto
