The “4 Israeli tribes” – tolerance and the cleavages between the Israeli groups


The members of this team, from Tel Aviv Youth University – a project which enables periphery high-school students to have an academical semester in the university, were inspired by a lecture discussing the idea of “The 4 Israeli tribes” – a phrase that was coined by the President of Israel to modify a four groups that Israel is disintegrating into: the ultra-Orthodox, the national religious, the Arab sector and the secular Jewish sector. The young students, Arabs and Jews, religious and secular, who succeeded in bridging the gaps and disagreements – studying and living together – wanted to express the idea that there is another way.

A special presentation of the WYRED project

A major milestone for The Tel Aviv Summer University  program was achieved as the young students presented their projects in their graduation ceremony.
The program was led by Dr. Tal Soffer, head of The unit for technology and society foresight (TSF) at Tel Aviv University, and the Youth Summer University’s staff. The students were exposed to various issues related to the digital society in the present and in the future, focusing on the Israeli society. It was done through various tours in relevant places and lectures about different subjects. Following that, the students were asked to identify a problem that would be important in the year 2030, to explore it, analyze, and propose creative solutions that will engage with large audiences and reach the decision makers. The work was done in teams where the students could express their opinion in a moderated dialog.

During the graduation ceremony the WYRED project was presented, and the students showcased their projects to a wide audience including (no : necessary) senior representatives from  the Israeli Ministry of Education, researchers from Tel Aviv University, visitors from the third sector, educators and the families of the participants. 
You can have a small glimpse of two scenes video clip from one of the team projects, which deals with the refugees issue:

I giovani e il mondo del lavoro

Ciao a tutt*! Mi chiamo Elisabetta Svolacchia e studio Scienze politiche per la Cooperazione e lo Sviluppo all’ università degli Studi di Roma Tre. Con la mia ricerca ho deciso di approfondire il rapporto dei giovani e il mondo del lavoro, ponendomi quattro interrogativi: esiste un divario tra i desideri lavorativi dei giovani e l’ effettiva possibilità di realizzarli? Quali sono gli strumenti che vengono usati oggi nella ricerca del lavoro? Il lavoro sta subendo una progressiva democratizzazione o le barriere socio-economiche sono ancora influenti? I giovani sono consapevoli degli effetti della crisi sul mondo del lavoro? Se anche voi vi siete posti i miei stessi interrogativi o se siete curiosi di vedere le risposte che ho ottenuto, potete leggere la mia ricerca!
