Israelis, Palestinians and international participants will spend three days trekking along the route of the Green Line demarcating the border between Israeli and Palestinian territory. This is a political act that will be publicized in Israel, Palestine and the world and will draw attention to the urgent need to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict on the basis of two states for two peoples.
IPCRI – the Israel/Palestine Center for Research and Information, a joint Israeli-Palestinian peace center and think-tank, located in Jerusalem, is using the Walk the Green Line event as a fundraiser to support the work of bringing Israelis and Palestinians together in people-to-people programs that advance peace.
Walk the Green Line is a “walk-a-thon” fundraiser for IPCRI. Participants will join the Walk the Green Line event with sponsors backing their participation. Each participant will be required to raise 2,000 € or $2,500 plus their airfare to Israel/Palestine. Sponsors may be friends, family, work colleagues, neighbors, churches or synagogues, etc.
