A critical approach to education on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict
Solutions Not Sides aims to tackle Antisemitism, Islamophobia and polarisation around the issue of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in the UK.
The non-partisan programme has been formulated with the input of both Israelis and Palestinians as well as senior members of Jewish and Muslim communities, and is designed to prepare students to make a positive, solutions-focused contribution to debates on Israel-Palestine.
What we do
We use critical thinking tools and open & safe-space discussion with the aim of shifting attitudes away from supporting one side against the other, and towards seeking a solution for the human beings involved.
Solutions Not Sides has delivered conflict resolution training, provided educational workshops, and facilitated discussion on the conflict in the UK since 2010, engaging thousands of young people in the process.
Our innovative approach includes training opportunities for teachers, educational sessions for school students & youth groups, online resources, and of course the chance to hear first-hand perspectives from young Israeli and Palestinian peace activists.
