Lukas Pairon was initiator and coordinator of the program 3rdParty, which from 2009 to 2012 brought 4-5 times per year Israeli and Palestinian peace activists to 3 different secondary schools in the city of Antwerp, Belgium, where they met with 18-year old students, explaining them how they continued – against all odds – to dream of and act towards a peaceful co-existence in the Middle East. At the end of each school-year, Lukas took a selection of the Antwerp youth for a one-week trip to visit the peace activists projects and families in the West Bank and Israel. Following this 3-year program, Simone Susskind set up a similar program with schools in Brussels, called Israël-Palestine: Pour Mieux Comprendre.
