To understand how such a vision of the future could be scaled to transform the conflict, ALLMEP was thrilled to welcome keynote speaker H.E.Deborah A. Lyons, Canadian Ambassador to Israel, who urged the peacebuilding community not to rely on old strategies, but to be proactive and amplify the collective interests of the region.

Along with Ambassador Lyons, the conference included a plenary session on ALLMEP’s advocacy and the organization’s evolving strategies in a shifting political climate, a breakout session on building movements and internal affinity groups, and a session on the future of ALLMEP’s regional work in the creation of an alumni program.
