SAVING THE PLANET: A CONVERSATION WITH DR. TAREQ ABU HAMED & FILMMAKER ELIEZER YAARI

Online via Zoom
About the Event
Dr. Tareq Abu Hamed, a Palestinian chemist who is now the Director of the world famous Arava Institute for Environmental Studies in the Negev, will join the filmmaker of the powerfully moving documentary The Optimists in a heartfelt conversation about his belief that there is an alternative path to peace. Several years ago, he and his family left the East Jerusalem village in which they lived and relocated to Kibbutz Ketura in the southern Arava, in order to work at the Institute. The Arava Institute was founded 20 years ago on the kibbutz in order to advance cross-border environmental cooperation by bringing together Israelis, Palestinians, Jordanians and others in an academic program which teaches that “nature knows no borders”. The question they will discuss is whether the power of optimism is stronger than what is broadcast on the evening news.
The conversation will take place on Thursday, January 27 at 7:30 PM PST and is included with IJWC's Year-Round Subscription pass. If you don't have this pass, please register below to attend the conversation.
