Some of the most influential Israeli opinion-shapers working in the fields of consultancy, advertising and PR joined us on 24th-25th February for a two-day seminar. The group includes advisors to Government Ministers, and spokespeople for leading public institutions. Throughout the program, the participants engaged with leading Israeli experts on issues demography, solutions and activism, as well as Palestinian journalists on the media landscape in the West Bank and East Jerusalemites activists provided analysis into the daily political and socio-economic realities. A tour on the second day, led by Col. Ret Shaul Arieli provided an on-the-ground understanding into the viability of the two-state solution.
Following the seminar, a number of connections were made between the participants and Palestinian speakers to continue the dialogue, and to identify ways of incorporating the messages into their professional and public work.
