Gidon Bromberg

Co-Director
EcoPeace/Friends of the Earth Middle East

The experience of the World Fellows Program really helped cement the sense and the opportunities of what integration, what cooperation, what shared thinking can produce.

In 1994, Gidon co-founded EcoPeace, a regional organization that brings together Jordanian, Palestinian, and Israeli environmentalists to promote sustainable development and advance peace efforts in the troubled Middle East. He has spearheaded the advocacy campaigns of the organization both in Israel and internationally and developed the cross border community peace building program “Good Water Neighbors” that is seen as a model for other programs in conflict areas. Gidon speaks regularly on water, peace, and security issues, including at the UN Commission for Sustainable Development, the US House of Representatives, the European Parliament, and the UN High Level Panel on Security. He is a member of the EastWest Institute’s International Task Force for Preventive Diplomacy. Gidon was named an ‘Environmental Hero’ by TIME Magazine and was, with his co-directors, awarded the prestigious Skoll Award for Social Entrepreneurship.
