In the fractured lands of Israel and Palestine, many young people from opposite sides never have the chance to meet each other. That’s problematic, especially for the goal of bridging divides and bringing peace between the two communities. As a way to bring both sides together, a group of Israelis and Palestinians created an initiative called Tech2Peace where young people from both communities come together to learn tech skills—3D and graphic design, website creation, app development—and to engage in conflict resolution dialogue. One of the co-founders, Tomer Cohen, participated in peace camps when he was growing up in Israel, but found that after the programs finished, the friendships that had developed disappeared. The young people on both sides would go back to their regular lives. With Tech2Peace, the purpose is to foster long-term partnerships between youngsters by giving them life skills that could enable them to continue working together. Students in the program have said that it’s helped them learn new job skills and make new friends from the opposite community—a powerful testament to what technology can do for people.
