Mayors to Discuss Hi-Tech, Clean Tech and Education


More than 25 mayors from around the world have confirmed that they will be attending Israel's International Mayors Conference, which starts Sunday evening in Jerusalem and runs through Tuesday. Hi-tech, clean-tech and education are the focus of the agenda.

The conference will include a panel on the use of technology in education with Education Minister Gideon Sa'ar and Dr. Yossi Ben Dov, CEO of Time To Know, a visit to Bialik-Rogzin School, whose absorption of children of foreign workers was featured in the Academy Award winning film "Strangers No More" and a briefing at Rambam Medical Center's state-of-the-art underground parking garage, which can be converted in to a war-time emergency room in less than three hours.
