‘Peace, tolerance and friendship can not be decided behind closed doors and dictatet to the population’

The Canaan Conference is regarded as the beginning of a process towards our future aim, the establishment of a Center for Partnership with Israel and Palestine (CPIP) in Berlin.

In alignment with the request of the German City Council to build up locally more partnerships with cities in Israel and Palestine CPIP-Berlin is going to connect or initiate trilateral cooperations with NGOs and cultural centres in order to establish a network between already existing scientific, educational, cultural and business projects.

Youth and cultural projects, student exchange programs, start-ups, science labs etc. between Israeli, Palestine, German and European participants should contribute to enable a change from xenophobia and violence into an innovative, creative and motivating movement of pioneers and ambassadors of peace.
