The Environmental Protection Ministry announces a NIS 15 million ($4.8 million) budget to encourage youth movements to integrate the climate crisis and the need to fight against it into their goals and activities.

The program, formulated by the ministry in partnership with the council of youth movements and the Education Ministry, envisions training courses, appointing a sustainability coordinator, building climate coalitions, encouraging personal lifestyle changes, and organizing special activities during the annual Environment Day.

The program will begin during the current school year.
