Summer Break is Here
While the students are on their summer break, the Charney Resolution Center continues with its pro peace initiatives and partnering with like-minded organizations both nationally and internationally in order to achieve our goals.
Our First Official Ambassador
*CRC = Charney Resolution Center
As we mentioned in our previous newsletters, one of our goals is to nurture our graduates into CRC and EMIS ambassadors. As ambassadors, the graduates will represent the center and its mission as they go to make a difference in communities all over the world.
On May 6, In Turkey, CRC Ambassador Alper Üstüntaşco organized and spoke at the “TEDxGolbasi: Speaking the Unspoken” event on his experience and inspiration from EMIS and the Charney Resolution Center.
“The kids who I met there had enough potential to fight against the prejudices they faced and a talent of mediation to solve conflicts between humans, and in the future, between nations”- Alper Üstüntaşco | To read the full speech, click HERE.
Roaming The Skies Again
As part of a nation-wide project called “Taking Israeli Raptors Under our Wing”, CRC partnered with the Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel (SPNI) and sponsored the Eagle Project. The purpose of the project is to increase the population of vultures and eagles in Israel that has declined over the last few decades. Watch the video below about 11 EMIS students learning more about the program and setting the one of the eagles free with a GPS tracking device so that they can follow his route.
