About the Parliament
A scientific parliament for youth is being held this year in collaboration and connects youth in Jerusalem and Bonn.
The parliament brings together the youth with environmental and ethical issues related to their city.
This year the parliament also allows for a broader view and familiarization with local problems in other cities as well.
The collaboration between Jerusalem and Bonn offers a social meeting as well as a global and local perspective on the problems and challenges we face.
We chose to deal with the climate crisis, a crisis of which we are a part and which is our responsibility, in this parliament.

The issues dealt with this year
Innovative approaches in solving urban transport problems.
The role of the transportation system as a means of creating a prosperous and sustainable city, challenges in the city and the existing tension between private transportation and public transportation in Jerusalem. Allocation of resources for the benefit of public transportation.
Sustainable fashion (also known as ecological fashion) is a movement and process of fostering change in fashion products and the fashion system towards ecological integrity and social justice. Sustainable fashion is about more than just referring to textiles or fashion products.
We all need to eat, and preferably eat healthy, but how do our dietary choices affect the environment? When we consider our nutritional needs, do we consider human and environmental resources? Is the ecological impact inevitable or is there room for solutions and another way to do it?
