WHO WE ARE?
Green Knowledge Community, GKC, is an online community with the mission of inspiring and empowering Palestinian environmental entrepreneurs to turn their ideas into a reality, build successful businesses and enhance the green lifestyle in the Palestinian community.
We believe that every single one of us has the ability to achieve incredible things and life is too short to waste the opportunity to make it happen, so we inspire, motivate and connect people to address community needs. Also, GKC empowers youth and invite them to act and take the first green step in the way of developing their community and contributing in the sustainable development cycle.
GKC strongly believes in voluntary work and the effective contribution of individuals in preserving the common environmental heritage as well as promoting the environmental awareness to build positive changes and attitudes, particularly under the critical environmental conditions in Palestine.
