After our community service and lunch we headed off to the Peres Peace Center. The Israeli Innovation Center at the Peres Center for Peace and Innovation is now open to the public. CAARI has visited this special place over the years, but now they really have a wonderful information program which inspires all who visit.
This beautifully, but modestly constructed building, is located in the Jaffa neighborhood, overlooking the wide open Mediterranean Sea, which speaks volumes for the location and work of the Center.
The Peres Center for Peace and Innovation is one of Israel’s leading non-profit NGOs was founded in 1996 by Shimon Peres. The Center develops and implements unique and cutting-edge programs in Innovation, Sports, Cultivation of Leadership and Entrepreneurship, Health, Business, and Environment.
These flagship programs serve hundreds of thousands of beneficiaries of all ages, religions, and genders, and are implemented with a network of local, regional, and international partners.
We were part of a group tour, lead by a well-versed guide and used a variety of multi-media presentations to inform visitors about the work of being done in Israel. Definitely innovative!
