Summary

Bereaved Israelis and Palestinians facilitators lead together Dialog Meetings, opening hearts, dismantling stereotypes and leading to hope, as basic platforms for formal and agreed peace.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

People from both sides of the divide don't have a chance to meet. Images conveyed by the media are negative and stereotypical. We know that no reconciliation between Israelis and Palestinians will be possible without humanizing the "other side", overcoming the hatred and demonization and gradually building trust and empathy. Its beneficiaries are high school and university students, groups of adults, policy makers; and by ripple effect - the general public in Israeli and Palestinian communities.

How will this project solve this problem?

A Dialog Meeting is a face to face event with Israeli and Palestinian facilitators, where both tell their personal stories of bereavement, share with the group their decision to work for dialog and peace and hold an open discussion with the audience.

Potential Long Term Impact

By meeting thousands of young Israelis and Palestinians every year, PCFF contributes to creating a critical mass of people in favor of a peaceful solution to Middle East conflict. It is crucial for young people shaping their identity and approaches.
