|Sakhnin is an Arab city in Northern Israel. There a remarkable project is underway, run by a group of dedicated Arabs and Jews, to teach environmental awareness to local school and university students. The centrepiece of the project is pioneering waste-water treatment, which is used to irrigate local farmland. In addition, Sakhnin's Demonstration Centre attracts some 50,000 visitors a year, and the project has been a great force for inspiring new trust and hope in community relations.
This portrait of Sakhnin is based on interviews with local people, giving them a voice to tell their uplifting story, against a history and continuing background of conflict.
