SPNI’s Open Landscape Institute (OLI)
Land Shortage and Open Landscapes
Israel has been suffering from a severe land shortage. While relatively small in size, the rapid growth of its population and the fact that land is used in a wasteful way, pose a real threat upon any remaining open land in the country. Unfortunately, without proper attention, this threat could prove irreversibly destructive to Israel’s environment.
Open spaces are the basis of life for people and natural phenomena alike. The unique natural and cultural heritage found in Israel, so meaningful to Jews, Muslims and Christians here and around the world, is found in her open landscapes. Safeguarding our open landscapes is essential for the supply of vital environmental and social services that will ensure the quality of life for Israel’s ever-growing population.
The Open Landscape Institute (OLI)
The Open Landscape Institute (OLI) was established in 1992 and is directed by Yoav Sagi former director and chairman of SPNI in order to promote the protection of land resources and open spaces in Israel and the region.
