Most of the Council's activity is done by its 2,000 committed volunteers, including children, who are known as the 'Guardians of a Beautiful Israel'.
The Yakir Award is awarded every year by the president of Israel for an outstanding contribution to the Jewish community in Israel and the Diaspora, especially in environmental issues and the preservation of quality of life in Israel. .
