Building Bridges

Creating Space for trust, dialogue and partnership!

Building Bridges is an educational exchange which facilitated the visit of nine British and Irish young people at the beginning of their careers to spend 12 days in the West Bank, Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT), in April 2013.

They were hosted by Palestinian emerging civil society leaders who had taken part in BAX’s leadership training programme in November 2011, and who accompanied them on a programme which took them the length and breadth of the West Bank, meeting a wide variety of people.

It was a unique opportunity to understand what daily life is like in the West Bank, build relationships with their counterparts, and explore shared ethical and cultural values.
