Tech2Peace is an independent initiative, created and conducted by a young staff of students and volunteers. Their aim is to run high-tech seminars and it creates a lasting and positive relationship between young Israelis and Palestinians throughout the process. They believe that these participants will not only leave as peace activists, but also as potential colleagues with a strong basis for future positive interaction.
Their mission is to equip the youth of Israeli and Palestinian society with the necessary skills to ensure that their can be greater co-operation and co-existence between Israelis and Palestinians in the future. Participants will come out of the seminar specialising in Web Building, 3D and Graphic Design or Mobile App Development.
Additionally, participants take part in experiential workshops focused on conflict resolution, helping to humanize which helps humanize the conflict on a grassroots level.
Following the completion of the seminar, Tech2Peace participants will not only become peace-building ambassadors, but also have the skills required to take their first steps towards a new-found career in High-Tech.
