JCC Victoria webinar raises awareness of Nature Israel and Israel’s environmental challenges: November 19

(AJNews) – On November 19, 2020 at 10 am PST, the Jewish Community Centre of Victoria will host a special Webinar dedicated to Nature Israel (Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel – SPNI) and the organization’s role in addressing Israel’s environmental challenges.

This virtual program will be of great interest to individuals and families who have a connection to Israel and who wish to learn more about the work SPNI is doing, outside the realm of political discourse, to ensure the longevity of Israel’s land and natural resources for generations to come.

SPNI is Israel’s largest environmental organization. For over 60 years SPNI has been dedicated to protecting and preserving Israel’s natural resources, environment, natural assets and unique landscape. The work carried out by SPNI now will determine what the land of Israel will look like for generations to come.

The Canadian Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel (CSPNI) is a Canadian Registered Charity (reg. #811512680). CSPNI’s mission is to raise awareness, and funds for, the work of SPNI to protect and preserve Israel. CSPNI is pleased to lend support to this program through the creation of this partnership with JCC Victoria, in support of SPNI’s work.

This special virtual program will be led by Jay Shofet, Director of Partnerships and Development at SPNI, and will highlight the programs run by SPNI to protect and preserve Israel’s fragile ecosystem and valuable resources.

Jay will trace the growth of Israel’s environmental movement. Then, he’ll give a snapshot of where things stand today: how a new ethos of dense, sustainable cities is slowly developing; how land use planning affects everything; how the push for renewable energy is fighting against entrenched economic interests and old infrastructure; and how Israel’s world-class biodiversity is threatened by habitat loss and fragmentation — and what SPNI is doing about it.
