Focus Experience #28
The Israel-Palestine Project: for improved understanding was created in order to make secondary students in Brussels (16-18 years old) aware of the complexity of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and thus build greater social harmony in the city.
Young people from very different socio-economic and cultural environments receive training and participate in debates, conferences and meetings with people from Israeli and Palestinian civil society. This work culminates in a study trip to Israel and Palestine in order to learn first-hand about the environment in which this conflict is occurring. In a second phase, the students receive training to act as “awareness ambassadors” in the schools of their city.
