We are Adam Teva V'Din
We believe that environmental rights are fundamental to human rights.
We believe in the intertwining of environment, society, human health and the economy.
That’s why we advance legislation, litigation and policies to strengthen environmental protection and build resilience to climate change.
That’s why we advocate for sustainability of development and for preservation of nature, and conservation of natural resources – for future generations.
That’s why we work to ensure all Israelis have a say in decision-making processes that affect the conditions in which we live, work, and play.
