Environment and Sustainability

Environmental issues have always been of central importance to the Greens and to the Heinrich Boell Stiftung. Equally important, have been the connections and links made to social and economic issues, creating a holistic vision of society and sustainability. Therefore, our work in Israel focuses on climate and energy policy, green economy and smart growth, urban resilience and sustainable communities. Jointly with our partners we work  in the areas of advocacy, policy development, capacity building and environmental innovation.
