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. Starting with Ben-Gurion’s early ideas for such a college, each transition represents a necessary probing step in the development towards a first-rate educational institution with unique objectives. These steps will be outlined here to show how the Center for Environmental Education came about and where it should be heading.
