Glocal Magazine 2019 Event Launch

5 May, 2019

Every year Glocal produces a magazine centered around a chosen theme, that is relevant to the field of International Development. In 2019 the magazine focused on the relations between Development and the Environment, the content throughout the event explored this topic from various angles. Our honored keynote speaker was Prof. Alon Tal (Tel-Aviv University) which discussed the tension between Development and the Environment from a more macro level, through elaborating on environmental policies. We had two short presentation from two alumni Alon Cohen Lifshitz and Hannah Reinl with stories from the field. We ended with a panel discussion that focused on environment and sustainability looking from local knowledge systems while exploring community development through environmental projects. The panel was moderated by Rina Kedem who worked over the last years with the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies (AIES) on environmental projects across the region with a focus on the nexus between community empowerment, environment and regional cooperation.
