The Council for a Beautiful Israel is the first and only non-profit environmental organization in Israel that focuses on the country's urban centers. Since 1968, it has led the nation in environmental action, striving to fulfill its vision of a truly beautiful country.
CBI is a public organization, under no governmental auspices. Its operations are funded mainly by philanthropic donations, through fund-raising events in Israel and abroad. Additional revenues come from strategic collaboration with leading companies in the industrial, financial and hi-tech sectors, social and community organizations, and from cooperation with governmental bodies such as the Ministry of Education and with the Israel Defense Forces (IDF).
Inspiring Israelis to create a better environment
CBI's activities are driven by the principle that each citizen needs to take responsibility and initiative in caring for the environment, both for themselves and for future generations. In accordance with this belief, CBI works through education, media campaigns, competitions and exemplary projects to inspire citizens and organizations in Israel to actively seek a greener, cleaner environment.
This mode of operation proves CBI as being a "pro" rather than a "con" organization. This attitude allows CBI to gain wide public support for its initiatives and carry its messages through all parts of Israeli society.
Working for all populations
The dedicated employees of the Council for a Beautiful Israel are joined by dozens of academic counselors in performing the various jobs and activities. The Council is also escorted by leading public figures and top professionals who voluntarily give their time and expertise.
The Council for a Beautiful Israel has 2,000 dedicated longtime volunteers coming from and working for all sectors of the Israeli society: Secular, Religious and Haredi Jews, Arabs, Bedouins, and Druze. The volunteers are activated by the Council's 13 branches spread throughout the country.
