The MIU – Movement for Israeli Urbanism, strives to improve the quality of urban life in Israel and actively promote the development of a sustainable and humane urban environment in Israel. MIU was founded in order to improve the quality of urban life in Israel by:
- People-oriented planning that prevents deterioration and atrophy of cities.
- Promoting sustainable local development that enhances opportunities.
- Advocating for democratic planning processes.
MIU is part of the community of environmental organizations in Israel; yet, MIU is the only organization that focuses on changing the urban built environment and works to develop the necessary professional and practical tools for making this transformation.
