Israel's Youth Groups Go Green

Green Badge
Israel's youth movements have added a new environmental code to their activities, with the aim of promoting the principles of environmental responsibility and sustainability.

Many chapters have launched recycling and waste separation projects and have even barred the use of paper plates and Styrofoam cups.

Some of the leading youth group branches, such as those belonging to the Israeli version of the Scouts, have even applied to the Environmental Protection Ministry for recognition as "green chapters."

The ministry has formed a joint committee with the Education Ministry and the Youth Movement Association to review such petitions, and create the appropriate "green badge."

According to the Environmental Protection Ministry, dozens of chapters nationwide have applied for the badge.
