Following the clashes of the Naher El Bared Palestinian refugee camp in 2007, Hariri Foundation partnered with the Lebanese Palestinian Commission for Dialogue & Development and the Refugee Association to launch the Lebanese-Palestinian Youth Forum. The forum aimed at disseminating the culture of non-violence through dialogue among Lebanese and Palestinian youth and at equipping youth with soft skills to excel in their professional domains. The forum organized an annual one-week youth camps engaging Lebanese and Palestinian university and high school students. Participants gathered to discuss various topics of co-existence, social trust, and human rights through general and moderated sessions with specialists in the subject matter.
Participants also received training on ICT, English language, and soft skills. Upon the eruption of the Syrian war in 2011, the forum extended its target and outreach to further engage youth Syrian refugees, and was renamed as the Lebanese – Palestinian – Syrian Youth Forum. By 2013, the forum had engaged a cumulative of 469 youth participations.
