Is there hope for a green tomorrow? A special session on this topic took place at the Presidential Conference, attended by KKL-JNF WLC participants and hundreds of guests. Climate changes and the ecological crises threatening our world were the focus of the discussion. Are the destructive processes leading human civilization to a catastrophe that could be irreversible? Heat waves, hurricanes, floods, depletion of fresh water reserves, hunger, desertification—these are some of the components of the dismal picture of our threatened future.


Alongside KKL-JNF Chairman Efi Stenzler, speakers on the panel included Prince Albert II of Monaco, head of the Grimaldi dynasty; Prof. Ernesto Zedillo, former President of Mexico, today the  Director of the Center for Globalization Studies at Yale University; Ertharin Cousin, Executive Director of the UN World Food Program; Shai Agassi, founder of the Better Place company for electric motor vehicles; and, chairing the panel, Dr. Miriam Haran, Director of Environmental Management studies at the Ono Academic College and former Director General of the Israel Ministry for Environmental Protection.KKL
Session participants agreed that global problems require international cooperation and obligate us, the residents of the world, to consider the wellbeing of future generations. Does this expectation reconcile with human nature? And, if so, what are we to do? These were some of the questions the speakers attempted to answer.
