Hody Nemes   Manager of Greening and Climate Initiatives

Hody Nemes joined Hazon after working as a reporter for The Forward’s news and digital teams. A graduate of Yeshivat Maale Gilboa and Yale, he was the advocacy co-chair of the Yale Student Environmental Coalition and a research associate for the Yale Project on Climate Change Communication, which studies public perceptions of climate change. He assisted in the execution of the Limmud NY 2014 conference, and previously served as a communications intern for Hatenuah Hayerukah, Israel’s green party, which regrettably did not improve the party’s electoral fortunes. In his spare time, Hody plays xylophone and steel pan and worries about climate change. He originally hails from St. Louis, Missouri.
