Green Prophet today heard about an interesting environmental conference we thought readers would like advance warning of: the Jerusalem Environment & Nature Conference, to be held at the capital’s Binyanei HaUma Conference Centre, on May 18-19. The conference features 6 sessions over the 2 days, all exploring the perspective of what has been achieved here within 60 years, and what needs to be addressed (it’s a long uphill battle, folks…).
Specific sessions explore the hot topic of water (see a Green Prophet water-related post here), education (see a Green Prophet education-related post here), and ‘an urban vision – what is a City’s Nature?’. This session is scheduled to include the Mayors of Jerusalem, Haifa, Rishon LeTzion and Rahat, and could be illuminating.
The conference will be packed (allegedly) with MK’s, mayoral hopefuls, heads of NGO’s, worthy professors, scientists, CEO’s of environmental start-ups, and hopefully many many concerned nature-loving citizens.
Several environmental films are promised, to lighten, or heighten, the load. Green Prophets will surely be there, baracking MK’s in corners and ensuring they live up to their promises to legislate Israel a greener land.
Me – jaded …. no way! See you there.
