A joint workshops between the JAI Youth for Peace and Development and DanChurch Aid Youth Group were held on the 17th and 18th of February 2012, with the participation of 14 Danish and 11 Palestinians at the YMCA building in Beit Sahour.
The first day it was an orientation on the JAI work with youth and about the DCA youth group work, with discussion on a campaign that the Danish youth group wants to launch in Denmark about Palestine to advocate for the Palestinian cause. Then both groups went for a dinner to bond on a personal level.
The second day workshop was from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm, where the participants were distributed among 3 working groups: the first group discussed the importance of the partnership between both youth groups and the campaign in Denmark, the second group discussed ways in which both groups will communicate andi nteract (website, blogs, facebook, youtube), and the third group discuses the working process of the campaign and ways of fund raising.
At the end of the workshop the participants put a time line for working together and dates to start working on the campaign.
