The Environment's Role in Middle East Peace: A Blueprint for Progress

Feb 10, 2015, 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Professor Alon Tal, veteran Israeli environmental activist, will speak at OSU Hillel (46 E. 16th Ave.). He will review over 20 years of 'below the radar' environmental cooperation in Israel and will consider the stalled peace process and how it might be leveraged to ensure ecological progress for the area.

Tal was voted as Israel's Most Effective Environmental Leader; he founded the Israel Union for Environmental Defense, Israel's leading green advocacy organization, and the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies, a regional center for Arabs and Israelis; and he is a Ben Gurion University researcher.
