About us


The vision for founding the WBC was developed in an agreement signed between the German Jusos, the Palestinian Shabeebat Fateh, and the Israeli Mishmeret Tseirah shel Mifleget Ha-Avodah in 1996.

The three youth organisations agreed in this document to found a centre in Jerusalem. This centre should enable equal encounters between German, Israeli, and Palestinian youth and young adults.
Following three years of intense work in Jerusalem and in spite of the Second Intifadah, the vision became reality in October 2003.

Since then, a team consisting of ten young Germans, Palestinians, and Israelis takes part in the work of the WBC coordinated by the German side. Due to the current situation most of our activities are run on separate German-Palestinian and German-Israeli tracks.

The German umbrella organisations are the Support Association of the WBC and the forumZFD. The WBC is located on the Green Line in Abu Tor/Al Thouri.

The aims of the WBC are based on the ideas of the Civil Peace Service and on social democratic values.

We strengthen trust and solidarity between young political activists. Together with them we aim to develop active forms of coexistence based on social and political justice.

We support the development of sustainable communication that is both intercultural and non-violent.

We develop an understanding for different historical narratives and realities the three sides live in and refer to.
