Building a Sustainable Israel: Lessons Learned Since Independence
Saturday, April 25: 1 pm

Urban planner and land use specialist Kevin Dwarka, Ph.D., offers an overview of contemporary environmental issues in Israel with an emphasis on land use, transportation, and housing development. In light of Israel Independence Day (this year on April 23), these issues will be explored through the prism of Israeli independence as the turning point in the country’s management of land, water, and transport. Dr. Dwarka’s talk is based largely on his professional involvement with the Israel Smart Growth Policy Project, an urban planning initiative sponsored by the Israel Union for Environmental Defense and funded by the New Israel Fund’s Social Justice Fellowship.

This event is sponsored by the David, Ursula, & Adina Michaeli Memorial Education Fund at Shaare Zedek, and co-presented with the New Israel Fund.

Registration for lunch (beginning around noon) will be posted soon, free for members and children 12 and under, and $12 per guest adult.
