On behalf of the forum, I prepared reports for government agencies and local authorities, professional tours for government and public agencies, and developed the first of its kind in Israel course titled: Supervisors of the treatment of the construction waste process for the Israel Standards Institute in collaboration with the Environmental Protection Ministry.
The course graduates were integrated into the recycling industry in Israel, for which I am very proud.
I have recently returned to Israel following two years of living and working in Panama, where I developed a first-of-its-kind course (for Panama) , in treatment and recycling of construction waste, that gained exciting media exposure, for engineers, local architects and representatives of international companies from the construction waste management field.
Today, most of my time is spent either on managing an initiative I founded, for varied sectors and individuals, titled: Israeli Raw Materials Resource Forum for the Construction and Infrastructure Industries – IRMI, or lecturing on: The future of raw material resources for the construction and infrastructure industries in Israel, or on my work as co-founder of Eden – Wood Waste Recycling Center, or giving lectures on gender-aware planning in Urban places.
I managed a survey on behalf of the Weitz Center for Sustainable Development – on improving efficiency in a local authority, that examined the potential economic and environmental savings, by reducing the use of disposable plastic dishes and utensils in favor of reusables in afternoon kindergartens, whose conclusions were successfully implemented citywide.
I teach at the Academy andother places on behalf of The Interior Ministry – The Department for Municipal Administration, The Israeli Green Building Council (ILGBC), and others.
In the remaining time, I lecture to delegations from around the world, on waste management, environmental policy and regulations, and I also write the blog: Recyclecity.
I am an urban planner for green and sustainable initiatives. I am also an academic advisor and lecturer.My main areas of expertise are policy, environmental regulation and planning, treatment and recycling of construction waste, green initiatives, waste management of the raw materials resource for the construction and infrastructure industries in Israel.
