Seminar for young Palestinian political leaders in Jenin

On April 20-22, 2016, the PPC held a seminar in Jenin that provided young political activists with detailed knowledge of the conflict and a toolkit to promote the two-state solution. 44 Palestinian young leaders and university students took part in this seminar.

This seminar combined a series of lectures with group work, all covering the core issues of the conflict in detail, the benefits of a peace agreement and the two-state solution. The seminar was led by Fadi Jumah, a university lecturer and experienced trainer. Jumah paid particular attention to developing participants' leadership skills (political debate and negotiation skills, interpersonal skills, advocacy, communication skills and conflict resolution). He stressed the importance of having these skills when mobilizing one's community and when engaging in peace promotion.

The young leaders left the seminar with considerable knowledge on the current political situation and a particular set of skills that is expected to help them utilize the newly acquired knowledge.
