Project Wadi Attir

menu

There’s been a flurry of activity at Project Wadi Attir this fall, as groups from far and wide have come to learn about the project’s many unique aspects. We can’t wait to share photos of our visitors onsite, but first, we’d like to introduce you to the new Director of the Visitor, Training and Education Center, Amran Amarni.

20150831_152005

Amran is an accomplished educator in the fields of environmental science and ecology who has made shared society, diversity, mediation and interaction between cultures a primary focus of his work. While working as an educator and a coordinator of educational programs in organizations around Israel, he has also volunteered in numerous peace-oriented projects for youth leadership of diverse backgrounds, such as the JITLI Peacemakers International Teen Leadership Institute, the Ecological Greenhouse of Coexistence at Kibbutz Ein Shemer, and the Messengers of Peace Scouts. In all of these projects, he developed training programs, guided groups of students and led mediation sessions between students of different cultures. He is already proving to be a great addition to the team, as we seek to bring Jewish and Arab students together onsite, and as we host people from all over Israel and the world at large.

Here are some of the groups who’ve visited us recently:

Project Management Students from Al Qasemi College and the College of Emek Yezreel, August 31st, 2015

Students enjoyed a tour of the site, a lecture from Amran related to project management, and a communal meal.

Delegation of European Future Leaders, September 8th, 2015

This group was comprised of 30 young Europeans identified as leaders in their field by European and Israeli Embassies. The delegates, who were not Jewish, were all enjoying their first trip to Israel, arranged by the Foreign Ministry, with the goal of exposing participants to Israeli social entrepreneurship and shared society ventures. The delegation included consultants, journalists, NGO managers, social entrepreneurs, LGBT and minority rights activists, and even an Italian chef working on a social farming enterprise.
