Engaging Youth in Ramallah

In November, the Palestinian Peace Coalition-Geneva Initiative held a two-day seminar in Ramallah, focusing on the role of youth in bringing a positive change to their society and politics.
As part of the seminar, the young participants heard lectures from various experts, including former minister and member of the Palestinian negotiating team Samih Abid and PPC-GI Director Nidal Foqaha. The two spoke about recent efforts to achieve internal Palestinian reconciliation, and the opportunities and challenges faced by the peace process with Israel.
One of the highlights of the seminar was a conversation with the Finnish representative in Ramallah, Ambassador Anna Kaisa. The Ambassador spoke about the Finnish experience in empowering youth, and especially young women, to bring forth change in their society.
