Sustainable Israel

Program Description

Sustainable Israel develops professional skills through an intensive theoretical and applied fellowship in sustainable development. This unique fellowship builds innovative capacities that participants will take with them as a “tool kit” for sustainable development.


Participants study permaculture design and sustainable development, ecological agriculture and architecture, EcoVillage design, natural building, renewable energies including solar and biogas, rainwater collection, community building, group dynamics and much more. Participants approach sustainability through a modern Jewish perspective and develop a living and relevant expression of Jewish environmental ethics. The fellowship includes meetings with policy makers in the Arava Valley, tours of neighboring Kibbutzim and Jerusalem, service learning in Be’er Sheva, hiking in the Southern Arava and snorkeling in Eilat. Upon completion of the fellowship, fellows receive internationally recognized Permaculture Design Certification.
