Palestinian Youth Network 2009 Summer Camp Introduction
International Palestinian Camp: Networking for a better future for Palestinians all over the world

In the three years of developing PYN from an idea to a tangible vehicle of activism and voice for Palestinian youth globally, we have been confronted with some of the most critically challenging issues that face Palestinian activist youth internationally. As a result of 61 years of colonialism and expulsion from our homeland it is inevitable for us to experience a wide diversity of class, national backgrounds, perceptions of gender, religious beliefs, political affiliation, cultural practices, and much more. This summer camp is aimed at exploring what Palestinian identity is and how it is represented and understood among various Palestinian communities. The PYN’s first summer camp will briefly examine the history of the collective Palestinian identity and struggle for liberation to better contextualize the commonalities and diverse array of issues young Palestinians face globally. The camp will provide a space in which Palestinian youth from all over the world will meet, learn about various Palestinian communities and perspectives, to develop a more comprehensive understanding of the diversity of Palestinian identities and to recognize collective Palestinian rights and responsibilities. The camp will also give the youth a space to learn about various pursuits of social justice as well as methods of leadership training and development.
