  • Mission:
  • The Arava Institute for Environmental Studies is the premier environmental teaching and research program in the Middle East, preparing future Arab and Jewish leaders to cooperatively solve the region?s environmental challenges. Together, faculty and students are advancing a critical common cause: a sustainable future for the region?s human and natural resources. The Arava Institute fosters genuine partnerships among young Israelis, Jordanians, and Palestinians, by bringing them together to live and study the environment for a long-term period (min 4 months).

  • History:
  • Established in 1996, the Arava Institute, a non-profit organization, has hosted graduate and undergraduate students from around the world, bringing together Israelis (both Arab and Jewish citizens) to study and work with Jordanians, Palestinians and North Americans, as well as students from other parts of the world. To date, more than 400 students have attended the Arava Institute, with over 50 female participation. By emphasizing shared environmental values, the Arava Institute is able to foster cross-cultural partnerships and promote coexistence initiatives in the Middle East.
