The Israel Green Movement primaries are in two weeks – 12 December, 2008. Several more wonderful individuals have declared their candidacy for the IGM list for Knesset. I’m likely not going to be able to profile them all, so ask them to prepare a short bio that I will post. The growing list includes individuals with a broad variety of backgrounds and talents.
The new candidates (in no particular order):
Dr. Hussein Tarabiah is founder-director of the Regional Center for Environmental Education and R&D (TAEQ) in the Beit Natofa Basin near Sakhnin.
Dr. Gershon Baskin – Co-director of the Israel-Palestine Center for Research and Information, profiled on this blog here.
Samuel Chayen – Longtime political advocate and lobbyist for Life and Environment, The Israel Union for Environmental Defense, and others. Israeli NGO representative to the talks on the Montreal Protocols. Currently doctoral student in the Science and Technology program at Bar Ilan University.
Dr. Sarit Oked
Atar Friedman – marketing director in a private company and graduate student in biology at Tel Aviv University.
Racheli Tidhar-Kenar – Longtime activist with Green Course (where she is also a board member) and the IGM, holds a graduate degree in organizational behavior, and a private consultant for social and environmental change.
