YOCOPAS

Youth Organized Collaboration for Peace and Sustainability –  YOCOPAS

Meet. Connect. Act.

What is YOCOPAS?

YOCOPAS is an Israeli-Palestinian-international action based youth leadership movement which aspires to be an incubator for local change makers and social initiatives which will positively influence the reality of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

We seek to change the reality of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict by bringing together youth leaders from Israel, Palestine and the world to incubate mutual understanding, social entrepreneurship and collaborative action.

Who are we?

We are a group of international students and educators from the Eastern Mediterranean International School EMIS .

The reality of the conflict together with our first-hand experience with youth leadership has led us to establish YOCOPAS as a way to inspire youth to take action and change the reality of the region.

Why do we do it?

We believe in action-based dialogue and collaborative, practical action of passionate youth leaders from Palestine, Israel and the rest of the world as a way to change the reality of the conflict and improve the state of communities which are influenced by it.

How do we do it?

We provide bright, young leaders from Israel, Palestine and the world, who seek to change the reality of the region, with the platform and tools to become local change makers.

We do it through an annual conference, weekend seminars and a leadership program in development.
