It was only last year that CNN accepted ISRAEL21c as an affiliate of its World Report program. Since then, we are proud to report an impressive 15 news features produced by ISRAEL21c that have appeared on CNN, reaching millions of viewers worldwide.
ISRAEL21c video material has appeared on the highly successful and long-running CNN World View, the thrice-weekly program hosted by Guillermo Aduino, and on the CNN website.
The latest video featured by CNN is about Israeli, Jordanian and Palestinian environmentalists who have put politics aside to challenge a $15 billion World Bank plan to revive the Dead Sea (which is dropping by about three feet a year) another features that have appeared earlier in the year include a piece on Hebrew University’s new approach to learning, by treating passengers travelling on the Israel Rail Service to a series of lectures by the institution’s top scientists.
Other encouraging stories chosen by CNN this year describe a mixed Jewish-Arab choir that practices its message of coexistence out loud, and a group of Palestinian and Israeli midwives working together to ensure that pregnant mothers in Israel and the Palestinian territories have safe and natural births.
Rather than portraying Israel as a place of conflict and strife, these stories have highlighted Israeli accomplishments in science and technology, arts and culture, and philanthropy.
They depict what ISRAEL21c works to reveal – the true, myriad faces of Israel, beyond the conflict.
