MEET is an innovative educational initiative aimed at creating a common professional language between Israeli and Palestinian young leaders. Working together with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), MEET enables its participants to acquire advanced technological and leadership tools while empowering them to create positive social change within their own communities.
MEET aims to break the long-held misconceptions Israelis and Palestinians have of each other in order to foster cooperation and understanding among the youth that are likely future leaders of our region. Here’s why our approach is unique:
- MEET harnesses the students’ interests in technology creating a process in which mutual respect and understanding comes from working together and accomplishing tangible real-world goals.
- MEET uses technology to create a common language between Israelis and Palestinians that can be translated into future cooperation between the communities.
- MEET is an environment in which the pursuit of excellence and creative thinking are paramount.
- MEET works to sustain participant relationships over long periods of time.
