Tel Aviv's City Tree Hosts Eco Salons All Summer!

city tree tel avivLast month we wrote about City Tree, a green oasis in a historical building in central Tel Aviv. This urban environmental group focuses on restoring their 1920s apartment with ecological renovation methods (such as recycled paper construction and milk based paints), teaching urbanites how to compost, and cooperating with the Good Energy Initiative in order to promote energy efficient lighting.

Another important aspect of what they do is organizing Eco Salons – workshops, lectures, and discussions – that bring together the city’s environmentally conscious communities. And this summer their Eco Salon schedule is packed.

Their summer Eco Salon season includes:

Sustainable Economy: A lecture about sustainable economy, tour of the eco apartment, and food tasting from their wild kitchen. July 19th (contact [email protected] for more details).

Public Involvement and Investment in Renewable Energy Projects: Lecture about a renewal energy cooperative project and local and international examples. July 24th (contact [email protected] for more details).
