Description

Professor Alon Tal founded the Israel Union for Environmental Defense, Israel’s leading green advocacy organization and the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies, a regional center for Arabs and Israelis. Between 2010 and 2013 he served as chair of Israel’s Green Party. Haaretz newspaper selected him as the country’s most effective environmental leader and Israel’s Ministry of Environment gave him a life achievement award at age 48. In 2005 he was the winner of the prestigious Bronfman prize, and international humanitarian award. Today he chairs the Tel Aviv University’s department of public policy.

The lecture is based on a Professor Tal’s award winning book “The Land is Full”, published this year at Yale University Press.
