We’ve neglected the blog for the past week and we’re sorry. But we have a good excuse! This past week Zalul team members participated in the 9th Annual Youth and the Mediterranean Conference in Villefranche-Sur-Mer, France (just 30 minutes west of Nice). This year’s topic was global warming and Hannah Schafer gave the presentation on the impact of climate change on our small country.
It was an amazing experience connecting to environmental groups from Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Lebanon, Italy, France, Spain, and Greece. It was our first year attending the conference and we were greeted with open arms by all the delegations.
It was a powerful and inspiring experience that reminded us once again that our work to end pollution to the Mediterranean is not just for us and the other 7 million residents of Israel, but for all the people who share a coast along the big, beautiful blue sea.
