PANEL about Environmental Planning in the West Bank

I think this looks interesting, and it's free - but you should RSVP at the link provided below

PANEL PRESENTATION entitled
" The Kidron Valley/Wadi Nar Master Plan : Seeking Environmental Dignity through Collective Action "

Wed 09 April 2014 from 18:30 to 20:00 pm

I've seen conflicting addresses

The University event calendar said Room 359, Duques Hall, 22nd St near G St NW  ;   BUT  the RSVP website says Room B156, Phillips Hall Academic Center,[masked]nd St NW  I'll try Phillips Hall first.

Avner Goren, Archaeologist and Planning Team Member, Kidron Valley Master Plan; and
Rana Khalaf, Principal, Afaq School for Special Education

The Kidron Valley, which stretches from East Jerusalem through the Judean Desert to the Dead Sea, has been ravaged by years of unchecked development and neglect, creating an environmental disaster affecting residents on both sides of the Israeli-Palestinian divide with major environmental, health and economic consequences. Avner Goren and Rana Khalaf will discuss their efforts to address this challenge through the Kidron Valley Master Plan and the subsequent Implementation Plan, which works with stakeholders to find solutions that transcend boundaries and political differences. The panelists will focus on their collaborative efforts to preserve and improve cultural landmarks, provide environmental education to local populations, and transform the Kidron Valley through improved planning, land usage, and infrastructure.

    As per Jeryl's instructions below, I'll wait by the entrance doors to Phillips Hall Academic Center,[masked]nd St. The entrance is set back from 22nd Street in a courtyard. Look for the '801' address above the doors on the left of a glass stair tower. I'll be outside in the courtyard with the Meetup sign.

    Afterwards, we can go to the District Commons on Washington Circle for food, drink and discussion.
