The Geneva Initiative in the South: Seminar for Young Political Activists in Yeruham

In mid-April, the Geneva Initiative held a two-day seminar in the southern city of Yeruham that provided young political activists with detailed knowledge of the conflict and a toolkit to promote the two-state solution.
 
The seminar brought together 25 political activists and community leaders from diverse backgrounds to learn about the core issues of the conflict, possible alternatives to solve it, narratives of their counterparts, and benefits of peace. For many of the participants, one of the seminar's highlights was meeting four young Palestinians and hearing about their every-day lives and efforts to advance the two-state solution.
