Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel’s non-stop city, is the trend-setting and media center of the country, where one million people enter and exit each day. SPNI, observing the national shift in political power towards local issues, founded the Tel Aviv branch in 1999 to inform and mobilize Tel Avivians, creating a local base of environmental strength. SPNI’s Tel-Aviv Urban Community is affecting change within local communities and building a stronger civil society with the goal of protecting nature and promoting a healthy environment.
Green Council Watch – The main purpose of the Green Council Watch (GCW) is to monitor the environmental activity and to ensure proper management by Tel Aviv-Yafo city council members. The project has several aims: to strengthen civil society, to increase transparency, and raise environmental awareness among city council members. The council brings people of diverse backgrounds together under the shared interest of protecting their immediate environment and increases the residents' say in local decision making. The GCW serves as a major force which is responsible for providing environmental training and leadership development in the Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipality.
