During February 2011, a workshop was held at Samuel Neaman Institute in cooperation with the Kishon River Authority, with the purpose to define the major issues for the development and prosperity of the Haifa bay area, and identify the correct balance between them, and by doing so achieving the goal of long term planning and integration. In the workshop, issues were discussed as markers for development trends.

The workshop included a discussion and a brain storming session in three working groups - social, economic and environmental. The workshop results set a basis for a multi-disciplinary discussion concerning the bay area development and what guides this development strategy.

Following the workshop, on December 2011 a sustainability conference was held, which deal in part with the recommendations from the workshop. Common discourse among industry, government, NGOs, academia and the public emphasized the fact that this is a process that has begun, but still requires much work and continuous cooperation among the different stakeholders.
