Abstract: 
  • Was a continuation of the project implemented in 2001-2002 in cooperation with the UNDP/PAPP. The five identified locations in the Hebron District were again targeted by implementing two major tasks. In the first task, schools at these locations were approached and each school has nominated two teachers for an extensive training program done by experts from REERU and PPU. The program was prepared in such a way to strengthen the teachers' capacitates in issues related to environmental education, teaching, awareness and module buildings. Teachers trained have in turn build environmental clubs in their schools and implemented what they have learnt in the education curriculum. The second tack was performed by the students where each school has designed and implemented an "environmental projects". The projects then were competing in a ceremony (visit Gallery). The project managed to build the environmental activists among the schools students.
  • A steering committee was formed in which REERU is represented as the Palestinian focal point.
