Conservation Union (IUCN), and of the task force dealing with protected areas in global

Raising awareness and public participation

In order to promote greater awareness and to increase the involvement of decision-makers, planners, professionals and the general public in land use and open space preservation issues, OLI performs the following:

 "OLI Forum" – OLI's think tank consists of professional experts and practitioners from the public, private and academic sectors to discuss planning, land management and other relevant open landscape issues. This well-attended and influential forum is especially helpful in conveying OLI messages.
 Presenting OLI policy principles and tools to relevant planning, legislative and executive authorities.
 Disseminating copies of OLI studies, policy papers, surveys and information regarding open spaces and their preservation both online using our website (www.deshe.org.il), physically and through other channels.

 Organizing lectures, seminars and presentations, and participation in professional conferences and meetings on the topic of preservation of open landscapes.
