Although the Middle East seems to be a hornet's nest of conflicts, the work of Gidon Bromberg over the past 15 years has been to find common ground through "the commons" -- mainly water and other natural resources that don't know anything about human-made boundaries. Friends of the Earth Middle East is a unique organization that brings together Jordanian, Palestinian, and Israeli environmentalists to work collaboratively to resolve environmental issues. In fact, Gidon sees issues of water scarcity as a vehicle for bringing people together to come up with solutions. Watch one of his stories and let it inspire you to promote peace too!
