From January 2020 until December 2020, a new group of young Israelis and Palestinians will become a part of Youth Peace Initiative’s Young Leadership Experience. As part of this one-year programme, YPI is organising the Middle Eastern Peace Process Conference from the 29th of February until the 7th of March 2020 in the Netherlands. During this conference the participants will engage in dialogue sessions, workshops and trainings to develop themselves on a personal and professional level. In order to facilitate this process, YPI is recruiting a delegation of youth from (post-)conflict countries to attend the MEPP Conference 2020.
The international delegation will be made up of participants that live in (post-) conflict areas, who have experience in conflict resolution activities in their country and are able to share their experiences with the group, and who are able to contribute to the dialogue as impartial partners.
In short, YPI is looking for participants between 18-29 years old from (post-)conflict countries, such as Cyprus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Northern Ireland and Colombia, that are:
- Experienced in conflict resolution and peacebuilding activities in their region;
- Eager to develop themselves on a personal and professional level;
- Proficient in English;
- Familiar with the history and background of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict;
- Fully available to be in the Netherlands from the 29th of February – 7th of March 2020.
Youth Peace Initiative covers the costs of transport (including the travel to and from the Netherlands), meals, and accommodation during the week of the conference.
