Impact on Youth:
Youth groups are one of the main pillars of the The Palestinian Heritage Trail. They are a future generation advocating for the important role of community tourism in leading to the development of hosting communities. Many of our projects involving school pupils and university students focus on environmental issues and cleaning campaigns. Through these activities we aim to get the youth out on the trail to experience their country on foot and learn about the rural Palestinian communities.
