A partnership between the Arava Institute (a JNF partner), the Build Israel Palestine Council, House of Water and Environment and Drew’s CRCC has brought graywater recycling installations and solar-powered water pumping station to villages throughout the West Bank.
Environmental Justice is based on the concept that the most economically disadvantaged populations are subjected to the most environmental hazards where they live and play. In the Palestinian Authority, many villages do not have access to water treatment infrastructure, nor do they have the technology to utilize scarce fresh water more than once.
Community members of all faiths are encouraged to attend, and to learn about how shared values can be put to work for peace and cooperation in a fragile region.
