OneVoice is a serious peace grassroots peace movement, not "do-gooders" in the usual sense, but hundreds of thousands of people on both sides, getting real traction.
OneVoice launched imagine: 2018 to inspire Israelis and Palestinians to visualize what the region would look like in 10 years if a peace agreement were to be signed in 2008. The objective is to challenge people to regain hope and discard the assumption that the conflict is intractable, by enabling them to picture some of the tangible, everyday benefits of a peace agreement. The imagine: 2018 initative involves parallel essay contests in Israel and Palestine & an international film project.

More to come!
