City Tree - Bialik 25, Tel Aviv,
Climate Crisis | The Problem and the Solution
From the Personal to the Political – What Can We Do Now
***Presented in English***
– About the Event –
This Saturday evening, December 28 we invite you to join us in our beloved space at CityTree (25 Bialik) to understand the science and story behind our global climate crisis. We will gather at 18:00 and begin the talk promptly at 18:30.
Tami Zori, CityTree’s visionary and one of Israel’s Extinction Rebellion organizers, will guide us through her own experience of living the New York rat-race, renouncing the story that’s been handed to us, and creating a model of ecological city living that challenges the system as we know it.
Our planetary emergency cannot simply be solved at the individual level–it requires drastic systemic change that encompasses radical shifts at all levels, from the personal to the political. During this talk, Tami will offer actionable insights backed by scientific fact so that we can respond to climate change practically, collectively, and from a place of knowledge.

For those that may fear the heaviness of the evening—come as you are and where you are in relation to that fear. Amidst our wounds, there is still beauty to be seen. In the breaking down of our current story, there is an invitation to embrace what emerges in our bodies as genuine and tell a new story from a place of authenticity. It is messy. It is hard. Not separate from the space that we hold for grief and despair, we will light the Hanukkah candles together (7th night) and unite for climate justice.
We will experience this Hanukkah evening as an opportunity to also ignite the light within ourselves. We will stand together as a collective body to hold space for mutual healing and confront our feelings of loneliness. Tapping into fire’s transformative energy, we can engage Hanukkah (“the Festival of Lights”) by illuminating climate truth and cultivating charge for positive change as we enter the new year.
