Our Negev tour will focus on the forms of settlement in the Negev, including the kibbutzim, Mitzpe Ramon, cooperative farming settlements for immigrants, development towns, and Bedouin towns and villages. During the tour, participants will meet with local activists involved in various endeavors in the fields of entrepreneurship, education, culture, and economy, to learn about the history of the communities and their socio-cultural fabrics. 

We will also visit the city of Beer Sheva and will focus on social and civic initiatives operating in the city and around the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. The tour will include visits to non-profit organizations active in reducing social gaps, helping immigrants, and promoting coexistence and community empowerment. At each site, the participants will meet with the managers of the organization, volunteers, and community activists. 

Additionally, the seminar offers one-day trip to Jerusalem to visit historic sites and/or museums, so that the participants can integrate lecture contents from our seminar into ground experiences.
