EWI Partner, Gidon Bromberg, Honored by Time Magazine
Gidon Bromberg, a core member of EWI’s Task Force for Preventive Diplomacy, was honored by Time magazine this year for his organization’s innovative use of environmental activism to foster peace.
Time named Bromberg’s organization, Friends of the Earth Middle East, as one of its Heroes of the Environment for 2008. The organization’s projects reach across social, political, religious and ethnic lines in an effort to demonstrate that all our fates, regardless of our differences, are inextricably linked.
"We share the same environment, particularly the same water resources," Bromberg told Time. "And if we don't start working together, we're not going to have an environment."
EWI is proud to partner with individuals such as Gidon Bromberg and organizations FoEME. It is the vision, courage and creativity of such individuals that allows us to take the steps necessary to help build a safer and better world.
