16 May, 2013, TIPH participated in a closing ceremony for two TIPH funded projects relating to environmental awareness for school children in H2, organized by Hebron France Association.

Among the participants were representatives from the Ministry of Education and the Hebron France Association Director. TIPH Deputy Head of Research, Analysis and Information Division, Max User held a speech and said:

 – Shortly after having arrived in Hebron the interesting brochure “Hebron, historical, cultural and touristic”, edited by Hebron France Association. I particularly appreciated the interesting information about the architectural and cultural heritage in the town and the District.

These projects show that this association is sensitive to cultural and environmental issues, certainly also in its daily work with the children in Hebron. TIPH is happy to support this kind of projects also in the future.

The first project ‘The environment in a story’ focused on writing and drawing workshops. The 220 participants were instructed on how to write and illustrate their own stories about the environment they are living in. The stories have been compiled in form of a book that will be distributed in the schools in H2.

The second project ‘ Youth are actors of the protection of their heritage and environment’ gave the children the opportunity to implement environment related projects of their own. The classes were selected from six schools that participated last year’s cleaning campaign. They were followed up by two educators from Hebron-France Association and the school teachers who were informed before the project start. The aim of this project was to make the pupils more active participants in their education about the environment and to teach them basic project management. The class with the best environmental project idea was from al-Faiha school and rewarded with a trip to Akko.
