Sustainability in Israel, a Cultural Difference?
Interestingly enough, it seems that Israel is one of the rare countries that is approaching the trendy topic of sustainability with a more holistically world class approach. The State of Israel has declared that they will hold political leaders responsible for developing policies, procedures and strategies which meet the cultural diversity of Israel’s population and approach sustainability from a social, economic and environmental perspective. Culturally this is interesting in that Israel has always been very people-oriented and of course see little if no separation from people and land, or therefore, social and environmental. This intercultural difference might mean that instead of “man vs. environment”, Israel might see it as “man with environment” and create a whole new wave of options for the future of sustainability globally.
