Dear friends,

When was the last time you’ve encountered conflict that you can do something about? Have you felt inspired to lead change in your community?

Unfortunately, inspiration is often not enough. GATHER is looking to provide you with the skills it takes to create positive change in your community and transform conflict in ways that can be felt and heard on the ground.

Whether your field is education, tech, media, policy or any field relating to conflict or a need in your community, this method has been proven to help social ventures succeed, and we are here to teach you how to put it all together.

We are covering the entire cost of this workshop, led by Nitzan Weisberg, a leading design thinking specialist from Tel Aviv University, which will take place in Haifa on October 3 and 4.

If you are interested, please take a close look at this applicationand give some thought to whether or not you are ready to take your social venture to a new level! Application deadline is August 1.

If there are any questions I can help with, please do not hesitate to email me at

I hope to see you there with your social venture!

Best, Ashraf
