July 26th, 2010 Jerusalem, Israel – On the heels of a highly successful seminar for university presidents from the United States, a group of prominent Indian journalists is currently visiting Israel through Project Interchange, an educational institute of AJC.
The week-long program is being conducted in an intensive seminar format, offering the group broad exposure to the complex issues facing Israel and the region. Participants will witness demonstrations of Israeli innovations in such areas as water desalination and electric car technology, will meet with Israeli counterparts, and will hear about bilateral partnerships between India and Israel. The Project Interchange seminar will run through August 1.
Reflecting India’s rich geographic, religious, and linguistic diversity, seminar participants were selected from Hindi, Urdu, and English language media outlets which cover India’s northern, southern, eastern, and western regions, some of which target primarily Hindu or Muslim audiences.
The impact of a Project Interchange seminar continues long after leaders return home, as they participate in alumni programs;put their new networks, ideas, and understanding of Israel to work; and go on to shape public opinion and policy.
