Seminar for youth

In March, the Palestinian Peace Coalition (PPC)-Geneva Initiative organized a two-day capacity building seminar for a group of Palestinian young leaders in Ramallah.
The meeting, which was made possible thanks to the EU Partnership for Peace, focused on three main issues; the internal Palestinian split/politics, the diplomatic efforts (particularly the significance of joining international institutions/conventions), and the status of youth in Palestine and their actual political "weight" and influence on decision makers. Some 45 Palestinian activists from different districts and ideological backgrounds attended the event, and heard Mr. Omar Awadallah, head of the UN department at the PLO, Mr. Nidal Foqaha, director general of the PPC-GI and Mr. Ayed Atmawi, head of the PPC-GI youth department.
