TYO and Citizen Diplomacy
As you can read from recent posts by our fantastic Fall 2010 interns, intercultural exchange is an important priority for TYO. Our American staff and volunteers are important ambassadors in Nablus. Similarly, they are able to learn a great deal about Nabulsi life and culture, which they bring back to their communities in the US after their work with TYO. Inasmuch, we're very excited to participate in the first-ever Summit on Citizen Diplomacy, hosted by the US Center for Citizen Diplomacy, under the auspices of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in Washington DC this week. See the full agenda here, and stay tuned for tweets from TYO Director, Nell Derick Debevoise, who'll be in attendance.
