Sviva Israel and the Jewish Agency's Partnership 2000 of New Jersey-Delaware/Arad-Tamar are finishing a successful first year that paired two Israeli schools with two US schools in their Eco-Connection program. The Eco-Connection project, which began in January, 2009, focused on measuring pupils' ecological footprints and teaching the three basic tenets of environmental behavior - reduce, reuse, recycle. Pupils surveyed their ecological footprints and worked on campaigns to get their schools to reduce water and energy use. They also learned about Jewish responses to environmentalism as well as environmentally clean technologies.
