October 1-2, 2021
BuildPalestine’s Social Innovation Summit is an annual global gathering of dreamers and doers, coming together to imagine, build, and celebrate.
Harvesting our Community’s Power, Cultivating Pathways
Last year we imagined. Join us this year as we harvest.
In Palestine, the large majority of the population are under 35. Our younger demographic is redefining resilience in the face of a global pandemic, a failed political system, and a foreign occupation imposed since the moment we were born.
The 2021 Intifada (uprising) has demonstrated that Palestinians are in charge of our own narrative and reshaping our own vision for a free Palestine. We rose across Palestine – from Jerusalem to Gaza, Haifa to Ramallah. We marched to the borders of Jordan and Lebanon and as Diaspora around the world, united, with a revived hope for our future. We demonstrated that our struggle is one about shared and universal values – it is intergenerational, interfaith, intersectional.
What does this mean for the future of Palestine? Who are the changemakers on the ground? And what are our next steps as Palestinians and allies?
Join the conversation on October 1 and 2, 2021 to inspire, be inspired, and take action.
