Metal of Honor for Dimona

"Green" Metal of Honor for Dimona
 
In 2009 the City of Dimona was awarded the Metal of Honor by Green Globes for it accomplishments in the environment during the Project "Sustainable Development, Dimona". In 2005 Dimona, the third largest city in the Negev, launched the "Sustainable Development, Dimona" Project – integrating the principles of sustainability into the management of the city – under the auspices of Sustainable Development for the Negev.   
This process was possible through the cooperation of the Mayor of Dimona Meir Cohen and his Deputy Eli Bronstein who was responsible for the project, Sustainable Development for the Negev, the residents of Dimona, activists within the community and donors.
About 450 city employees and activists in the community participated in the courses and in-service training. The city was awarded the ISO 1400 for Environmental Management and a new district was developed integrating the principles of environmental sustainability and quality suitable to our desert climate. All educational institutions, from preschool to high school, participated in the environmental program.
In the future is planned a Municipal Environmental Unit and a conglomerate for regional water control; development of parks and green spaces appropriate to desert conditions; system for waste treatment and recycling, together with a station for employment of the handicapped and pensioners; bicycle paths; educational center with an emphasis on the environment and development of an ecological park.
