How can I apply for WBCS

Dear comrades,

For the very first time there will be a Work & Study delegation trip. We offer you a completely new opportunity to get to know the Willy Brandt Center Jerusalem, our partners in Israel and Palestine and the current political situation. This enables you to have a unique learning experience, an intensive exchange and the opportunity to support our partners.

 

Overview: Program of the Work & Study Delegation

In mid-September there will be elections in Israel. Our partners from Young Meretz and Young Labor are already in the middle of the election campaign to achieve a good result for the left-wing camp. For two days we will support our comrades in the election campaign. For actions on the street, in the campaign headquarters or in the evenings in bars and pubs. You can be there up close and experience the Israeli election campaign.

We will spend two days in Nablus in the West Bank. Our comrades have set up a political education and meeting center there. We'll help you find one on the roof Green Roof Garden and between the center and a synagogue one Garden of Tolerance to put on.

We will spend another two days in and around Jerusalem, where the study part of the delegation's trip will be dealt with. In addition to a tour of the old city of Jerusalem, a political city tour, a visit to the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial and the WBC are on the program. This is primarily about a learning experience that should give you a better understanding of the political situation in Israel and Palestine.

During the whole day, the focus is of course on exchanging ideas with our partners. In addition, there is time for joint political discussion and reflection rounds.
