About The Project
Tech2Peace aims to cultivate a new reality: Palestinians and Israelis innovating together, while leveraging the power of Israel’s impressive technology ecosystem.
Tech2Peace believes that through collaborative innovation, Israelis and Palestinians can build a better future for all in the region. In a complicated geopolitical landscape where opportunities for both groups to meet and collaborate are scarce — and economic challenges often take precedence over peacebuilding efforts — Tech2Peace aims to foster dialogue while creating economic opportunities for young people.
Through 12-day intensive seminars, the programme brings young people from both sides together to study collaboratively, combining technical learning and entrepreneurial training with intercultural and interfaith dialogue.
Participants then become leaders in their respective communities, creating fertile ground for cooperation and trust needed to advance peace in the region.
