Join us and our alumni — 3 from Israel and 3 from Palestine — to hear first-hand about their experiences back home, after graduation, working in public and third sector organisations to alter the reality that frames their lives.
After graduating from City University London many of the Olive Tree Programme's alumni go to work in influential roles. An Olive Tree Alumna, Stav Shaffir, was recently elected as Israel's youngest Member of the Knesset. Among the organisations that will be featured on this one of a kind evening are Peace Now, B'tselem and UNDP.
