Seminar for local community leaders in Bet Sahour

In early August, the Palestinian Peace Coalition – Geneva Initiative held a two-day seminar in Bet Sahour for some 30 local community leaders, including members of municipal and village councils.

The seminar was opened by the PPC-GI's Saman Khoury, who invited the mayors of Bet Sahour and Hebron and an official from the Bethlehem municipality to talk to the participants. The program combined lectures, discussions and training sessions, and featured journalist Nasser El Laham and Fateh Central Committee Member Abbas Zaki, among others.

This seminar was covered by several media outlets. See for instance this piece at Alwatanvoice.
