Ben-Gurion University of the Negev has taken on itself the responsibility to care for a cleaner and better quality environment as part of the project "Green Campus".
"Green Campus" is an initiative of the Ministry of Environmental Protection whose aim is to implement the subject of environmental quality in higher education institutions.
The steering committee composed of representatives from the Ministry of Environmental Protection, from academic institutions, and from the Council for Higher Education, has drawn up criteria and guidelines in order to receive formal accreditation as a "Green Campus".
