National ENERGY GLOBE Award Israel 2015
We are proud to announce that EcoPeace’s Jordan River Rehabilitation Project has been awarded the National Energy Globe Award, today’s most prestigious environmental prize worldwide
The project was presented on Friday, June the 5th at the UN’s World Environment Day on www.energyglobe.info, under the patronage of UNESCO and in cooperation with UNEP.
“The organization takes pride for this great achievement due to the importance of the Jordan River for the three riparian countries Jordan, Israel, and Palestine, and to the residents of the valley in particular. A rehabilitated River will have both economic and environmental benefits. Therefore, recognizing our efforts will further enable us to work towards our target of a rehabilitated River and turning the area into a tourist attraction point as well as promoting sustainable agriculture.” states Gidon Bromberg; EcoPeace’s Israeli Director.
