Wisam is a PhD student at Ben Gurion University in the field of Environmental and Science Education. Her study focuses on the residents Bedouin settlements as they undergo a place-based learning program at the Hebron River and its surroundings. In her research, Wisam asks how this place-based learning influences the students’ sense of place, nature attachment and observation skills. Wisam believes that education for sustainable environment is at the heart of environmental literacy, and intends to take an active part in strengthening the connection between individuals and their environment.
