The program for community and educational initiatives

Since 2015, professional staff from Ramat Hanadiv guides the projects that were accepted to the program for initiatives within the framework of two calls for proposals that were advertised in 2015 and 2016. The aim of the initiatives is to promote fulfillment of ideas, dreams and needs of the region’s communities with a sustainable approach.

The guidance is designed to drive the project forward, to guide and to act as an advisory body that encourages joint thinking with relevant projects and strategic partners in order to promote the project and meet challenge that arise along the way.

The guidance is performed while maintaining the initiators’ independence and driving them to towards long-term responsibility and commitment to running their projects. As of 2016, 30 projects were accepted within the framework of the calls for proposals, of which 18 are community projects and 12 are educational.

Initiators’ forum – a platform for creating community cooperation and dialog

“The meetings between the project leaders are enjoyable and create links between all of us”, Ido Aviani, initiator.

One of the overriding aims of the program is to form a network of collaborations and connections between initiators. “The initiators’ forum” facilitates achievement of this aim. The initiators’ forum meets every six weeks, where a different project hosts each meeting.

The program of meetings includes getting to know the host project, joint learning, support and consultation, and enrichment of the shared language and knowledge in the field of sustainability.

Conferences and events

We arrange central events to which, in addition to the project leaders, wider circles of community representatives from the region are also invited – project activists in the field, and often the entire community. This is all with the aim of raising community awareness of sustainability values and of the wonderful activities of the projects and the activists in the field, in the hope of expanding the circles of active partners.

Annual project conference

An annual conference is held to summarize the year’s activity, and at the same time reveal the call for proposals to potential initiators for the coming year of activity. Initiators, activists, strategic partners and also potential initiators are invited to the conference.
