Boulder-Ramat HaNegev Sister Cities
Ramat HaNegev is located in the Negev desert in southern Israel and encompasses 22% of the country’s total land area. With a current population of less than 10,000, the residents of the Ramat HaNegev live predominantly in Kibbutzim, Moshavim, and small farming communities.
The Ramat HaNegev region was along the ancient Nabataean Incense Route, and there are Nabatean ruins scattered throughout the region. Within the region, there are several national parks, unique geographical/geological areas, and ancient Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Roman, and Nebatean archeological sites.
We have launched several programs connecting Boulder to Ramat HaNegev, including people-to-people delegation visits between the two regions, an immersive language and kibbutz experience in Ramat HaNegev, pairing the tech start-up culture of the two regions, and collaboration between the University of Colorado and Ben Gurion University.
