Connect - Initiate - Impact
Peace agreements can be divided into two types. Those that are signed between politicians and occur only in the highest levels of governments, and those that lead to peace between the countries’ peoples. We cannot allow the governments to do all the work. We want to be the civil foundation of the Abraham Accords. We want to create a natural bridge between young Israelis and Bahrainis for the benefit of our region. The human connection that unites people will move the peace from the signatures on documents to the everyday realities and relationships between people. This is important to enrich our lives and better the lives of all in the region. Many mutual needs in the region provide joint opportunities for both Israelis and Bahrainis to learn.
An example of this is the challenge to Israel and Bahrain of living in an arid, desert region. Many Israeli entrepreneurs are creating startups in agriculture, irrigation and water use, and conservation. It goes without saying they would be interested in discussing with Bahraini entrepreneurs about the challenges, needs, and solutions to the problems posed in these regions. It can provide excellent opportunities for both countries.
be the change!
