The 1st Workshop in Urban Ecology
On the 22nd October, the Ibero-American University (Universidad Iberoamericana) hosted the event - 1st Workshop in Urban Ecology: Understanding the city as an ecosystem. The event was the outcome of a fruitful collaboration between KKL Mexico and the University.
The event took place in a warm and respectful atmosphere where the new representative of KKL for Northern Latin America, Magister Shay Salamon, presented the work of KKL in Israel as well as its projects in Mexico. The latter were presented in context of the main topics of the event: water, energy, air quality and residues. The attendants were impressed and surprised by the high level of technology involved in the development for a better environment in Israel.
One of the objectives of the event was to teach the real concept of urban ecology, which is the scientific study of the relations between human beings, the built surroundings and the environment, and how we can contribute with our knowledge to the planning and development of environmentally sustainable cities in the future.
