Ep 10: The Tragedy of the Commons with Gidon Bromberg
Sep 23, 2020 Episode 10
David Eastman & Daniel Blinick

Could an initiative that brought Israeli, Palestinian, and Jordanian environmentalists together, focusing on the shared environmental heritage for those peoples, be not only vital for the national security of those involved, but also create a path towards peace?

My guest today is Gidon Bromberg. Gidon is is the Israeli Director and co-founder of EcoPeace Middle East. EcoPeace is an organization whose prime objective is the promotion of cooperative efforts to protect the shared environmental heritage between Israelis, Palestinians, and Jordanians.

Gidon and I discuss some of the crucial work that EcoPeace has been involved in since its founding in 1994, some of the challenges that threaten this region in the coming decades, and how the model pioneered by EcoPeace of "environmental peace" could just lead to a path towards real lasting peace.
