We operate the Sustainability Center, a community endeavor that takes responsibility for its local residence and the environment. The Sustainability Center promotes environmental awareness, bringing activities to local schools and neighborhood institutions in Gilo. All of the planning and programming is carried out by Gilo residents, empowering them to take part in the betterment of their own community and develop a sense of social responsibility. Through the Center’s programming, Kvutzat Reut is educating Gilo’s next generation to take an active role in keeping its neighborhood alive and beautiful. Programming includes:

•    Communal gardening and cleanup projects
•    The creation of residential committees focused on neighborhood beautification
•    Holiday programming and special events
•    In-school and after-school workshops
•    Neighborhood-wide activities promoting economic and cultural development in Gilo
