Event Description

It is with great pleasure and anticipation that the Youth Federation for World Peace announces the 41st Middle East Peace Initiative from June 21st to July 4th. We will gather youth participants and organizations from Europe and America in the Holy Lands of Israel and Palestine under the banner of “Bridging Cultures— Becoming Peacemakers.“
Who is invited?
Youth leaders or organizers interested in meeting international youth also interested in learning more about peace-building initiatives.

Objectives of IYL MEPI:
1. To experience and celebrate the cultures of the Middle East by providing an unbiased portrayal of Israel and Palestine and the conflict.
2. To empower youth to take responsibility for the conflicts that plague the world by taking part in peace-building dialogues and service opportunities that engender cooperative relationships and the breakdown barriers of religion, ethnicity and nationality.
3. To provide a platform that focuses solely on ASPECTS of the SOLUTIONS not SIDES of the CONFLICT to introduce idea that problem solving can be creative and applies our passions or talents.
4. To provide a network for future partnership and collaboration amongst participants by introducing and working with NGO's and students active in different fields.
