Hof HaCarmel Regional High School was joined by three more schools: Alsalem Middle School in Jisr al-Zarqa, Ort Binyamina High Schol and HaMoshava High School in Zikhron Ya’akov.
The Secret is in the Connections
The connections and joint work among the different schools are an important part of the project. Besides the connection between Jewish and Arab children, there is also an interesting connection between different fields of study: some of the children belong to the art study track, and some to the geography and environment study track. As part of the programme, joint meetings took place between students from these two fields at Ramat Hanadiv.
The final outcome is a photograph by each student in the programme, accompanied by a text that is his/her interpretation of the photograph, in Hebrew and in Arabic. All of the photographs are displayed at the end of the year in an exhibition, with the aim of arousing public discourse on this issue. The photographs are surprising and interesting, and present a range of interpretations of the perception of regional sustainability, while relating to the relationship between the natural environment and the urban texture.
