MOTIVATION FOR AND COMMITMENT TO CREATING A BETTER AND MORE SUSTAINABLE PLANET

I am passionate about living in an urban city like Tel Aviv, I want to work to improve the quality of life in urban cities and making sure the ecosystem is not harmed. A. In this sense, I am investigating solutions that can create a balanced way of living in a city that both respects its nature and the basic needs of its people, towards cleaner environment (land, water and air), open spaces for people to gather and interact as a community. I believe my mission in life is to play a good part in this world for our environment, and that is my motivation.
