Label: Purpose & Activities

Our purpose is to report on environment news in the Middle East, while being mindful to cultural and religious sensitivities in the dialogue for a healthy environment and Middle East peace.

GreenProphet.com is a Middle Eastern environmental news site that focuses on green stories and living tips. We believe that as ecological issues have no boundaries, and there must be a forum for green leaders in the region to come together online. This year we organized a blogger's conference for young activists in Jordan. We also attended a Middle East water security event, attended by the Prince of Jordan, and voiced our concerns about the importance of getting young voices and that of environmentalists into the Middle East water dialogue and negotiations.

Our dream is to be the world-leading source of environmental news from the Middle East to help people build bridges, not bombs.
