14:30 – 19:00 Givat Haviva Campus
In its 7th year, the Givat Haviva Annual Shared Society Conference is widely recognized as the primary convening event for all actors working to build a shared society in Israel. The first six conferences (2013 - 2018) brought together hundreds of citizens and leaders from diverse sectors of Jewish and Arab society, including civil society, government, private sector, academia and the donor community, and garnered high-profile backing from State of Israel President Reuven Rivlin, U.S. President Barack Obama, and Palestinian Authority Head Mahmoud Abbas. These events provide a much-needed platform for discussions, experience sharing, and collaborative strategy development towards building a shared society in Israel.
The conference this year consolidates support for the idea of teacher education for a shared society by providing a public platform for academics, administrators, and educational professionals to discuss the ideas, originally developed in the “Roadmap for a Shared Society,” and issues of implementation.
The conference will culminate with a celebration of Givat Haviva's 70 year anniversary.
