Quiet Jerusalem

"Quiet Jerusalem" is a social organization under the auspices of the Jerusalem Green Fund that deals with increasing the awareness of noise pollution in Jerusalem and fights for a quieter city.

 

We mainly concentrate on:

  • Car sirens in situations where there is no danger

  • Loudspeakers with excessive amplification at events, businesses, restaurants, and cafes

  • Construction noises before and after the hours allowed by law

Wildflower Sanctuary

The Jerusalem Wildflower Sanctuary in Neve Yaakov began in 2001 as an attempt to rescue the many beautiful native plants which flourished in French Hill before a massive new construction project destroyed their habitat. The same procedure was repeated in 2012-2013 when over 400 units of flats was constructed in Neve Yaakov. Thousands of plants found a new home in the Sanctuary. 

The native trees, bulbs and seeds which have been planted in this formerly neglected and barren spot become the focus of an educational research and recreational center.  At the present time, over 270 species are detected, 30 protected species are growing in the Wildflower Sanctuary.

To volunteer or support the Wildflower Sanctuary contact Dr Anna Godneva.

New Life for Old Things

Dr Anna Godneva and Dr Shira Belotzky are leading an exciting initiative together with a team of senior citizens artisans. Their team has found purpose and fulfillment in give a new flavour, colour, look or use to objects that have been in their families for year, but had been cast aside. Check out their work and upcoming exhibition on their website. Some of the profits from the sale of their items will go to the Jerusalem Green Fund.

Young Green Global Coalition (GGC)

JGF’s Young Green Global Coalition (GGC), an international learning forum, is held via Zoom approximately every two months. Its members range geographically from China to Chile, including both coasts of North, Central, and South America. 

 

We understand what a cliché “Think Locally, Act Globally” may be for some, and yet it is never truer than now. Our GGC is thinking in both dimensions, trying to bring relevance, “green” spirit and living into our everyday lives, acting locally, thinking with one another on a global scale.

 

GGC’s current members include: JGF's past & present interns, students, and other interested "younger" contacts.  To support this group’s efforts, we’ve assembled a team of mentors (local & international). 

 

Past topics and discussions from various countries were: Slow Money Movement (China), supporting "green" businesses (NY), food waste (South Florida), The Ethics of Water Consumption (Mass), and education for generating social value in Central and South America (Mexico.)

English-Speakers Focus Group (EFG)
