Developing the Sde Boker Version of Environmental Education
Midreshet Sde Boker, in the middle of Israel’s Negev Desert, is the locus for a most important experiment in environmental education. Since the Midrasha of Sde Boker (College of the Negev) was first founded in the early 1960s, it has undergone some dynamic transformations.
