Sakhnin: Portrait of and Environmental Peace Project in Israel by Jan Martin Bang
Sakhnin is an Arab city in Northern Israel, where a remarkable project is under way. A group of dedicated Arabs and Jews there teaches environmental awareness to local school and university students. The centerpiece of their project is pioneering wastewater treatment, providing clean water to irrigate local farmland. Moreover, Sakhnin’s Demonstration Center attracts around fifty thousand visitors each year. The Sakhnin project has been a great force for inspiring new trust and hope in community relations.
