Description or Abstract
This documentary reveals the history and objective of AUC’s Research Institute for a Sustainable Environment (RISE). Founded in 2013, RISE positively impacts not only AUC and Egypt but also the Middle east and North Africa as a whole. The institution provides awareness to the entire Arab region and opportunity for AUC students to get involved in understanding and enhancing the environment. RISE generally promotes serious sustainability in a diversity of environments through crucial research and training programs. The Institute owes a huge part of its success to its predecessor, The Desert Development Center (DDC). The DDC, was the heart of RISE. For more than 30 years, the DDC worked to help the overall well-being of Egyptians in rural areas.
