‘Strategists from around the world agreed that “Israel is a laboratory” for eco-innovation and can serve as a platform for larger countries looking to harness sustainable technology’ [Jpost article about the United Nations Economics Commission in Tel Aviv].
That is exactly why we decided to invite more online influencers to another Eco Impact tour, 3 years after our first sustainability tour. The 5 influencers from Taiwan, Italy and the USA were all super knowledgeable and curious to learn about Israel’s eco innovations first hand. They were so impressed, some of them started publishing their stories even before the tour was over! From innovations in water conservation and desalination, to startups focusing on greener transportation, urban farming and solutions for smart cities, the week went by fast… We concluded the tour with a special farewell event, in collaboration with MIT Forum and “Entrepreneurship on Tap”, providing a chance to learn back from our influencers on the global eco trends coming up in 2017. It was a fascinating, inspirational and optimistic week all around.
