The Video Conference project aims to permit lecturers and students from Palestine and the International community to discuss the important and controversial topics of the MiddleEast Conflict in an open interactive dialogue. This live and interactive opportunity would be enabled through video conference technology.
The goal is to reveal the Palestinian perspective and impart personal experiences from the Conflict. This is a priceless opportunity for personal contact with people living directly in a troubled region at the centre of the international focus. It will allow the international participants to gain valuable insight into what the people directly involved in this conflict are thinking.
Likewise, it will provide the Palestinian students with a chance to see how they are perceived by the outside world. The open dialogue will reveal very valuable facts and information to both sides that the each needs to know in order to fully understand the other’s stance and viewpoints. Through the Video Conference, students would like to discuss the different topics of the conflict.
The Zajel Youth Exchange Program originated from a dream to develop an exchange program that brings together youth of diverse regions and backgrounds from around the world in order to interact with and learn about each other and Palestinian Society. Through the Zajel Program, everybody can express his/her own point of view, where they all can discuss and understand each other, and the Palestine question.
Zajel aims to create a dynamic learning environment for cultural understanding, and to provide experience in sharing and partnership in order to achieve better understanding and respect between people. Overall, its goal is to build a wide network of young people willing to make a difference and truly act as democrat leaders for change in their societies.
