Solutions not sides 2018

Solutions Not Sides delivered a workshop to some of our Year 11 students on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. They seek to tackle Antisemitism, Anti-Muslim hate around the issue of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Our students took part in the educational session which included first hand perspectives from young Israeli and Palestinian peace activists, who have been affected by the conflict.

Therefore the workshop focused on possible solutions to the conflict based on understanding both sides. The aim of the programme is to shift attitudes away from supporting one side against the other, and towards seeking a solution for the humans involved.

Additionally, the programme was formulated with the input of both Israelis and Palestinians, as well as senior members of Jewish and Muslim communities.

Our students asked some very intelligent questions, and really valued the chance to hear about the conflict from people who live in areas that have been affected.
