In 2015, The Heinrich Boell Foundation initiated a cooperation with the Heschel Center for Sustainability called, "Stepping Up Sustainability in Israeli Cities" with the aim of creating a "think and do" platform for cities, businesses and civil society that would work together to advance municipal sustainability goals.
The Heinrich Böll Foundation is pleased to invite you to a special event on the topic of The New Economy: Toward Smart Growth and Environmental Innovation. The event will include a keynote by the foundation’s President, Mr. Ralf Fücks, as well as other very interesting guests.
