However, most of them have an inconsistent and partial knowledge of the reality on the ground. The main target audience of the project are young people aged 20-35 from Palestine and abroad. <strong>The project’s aim is to provide a contemporary, unique and alternative approach to visiting Palestine.</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Im2-03-1428753350" src=""></p> <p>  </p> <p> The official launch took place on December 2014. <strong>The website is user-friendly and addresses young people from all over the world.</strong> <a href="" target="_blank"></a> was initiated by the Franco-German Cultural Center in Ramallah, and has been selected to receive funding from the Franco-German Cultural Fund, allowing the first phase (September to December 2014) of the project to take place.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <a href="" target="_blank"></a> - released in English - presents Palestine through articles, photos, videos and audio sequences of 10 main cities: <a href="" target="_blank">Bethlehem</a>, <a href="" target="_blank">Gaza</a>, <a href="" target="_blank">Hebron</a>, <a href="" target="_blank">Jenin</a>, <a href="" target="_blank">Jericho</a>, <a href="" target="_blank">Jerusalem</a>, <a href="" target="_blank">Nablus</a>, <a href="" target="_blank">Qalqilia</a>, <a href="" target="_blank">Ramallah</a> and <a href="" target="_blank">Tulkarm</a>. Similar to tourist guides, the website contains practical information, advice, broad maps and contacts for travelers. In addition to this, it also presents a cultural and literary dimension, using different communication and artistic tools.</p> <p>  </p> <p> The authors are young professionals from Palestine, France and Germany.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Im3-05-1428754422" src=""></p> <p>  </p> <p> The main goal of the project is to <strong>create a collaborative platform</strong> that gathers young professionals from different nationalities that can advocate the reality of Palestine and Palestinians using <a href="" target="_blank"></a> as a sustainable tool for youth tourism in Palestine.</p>
