One hundred ten members of Israel and Palestinian youth organizations will take an hour-long guided tour through the UN complex in the Austrian capital, the UN Office in Vienna (UNOV) said.
Unable to get to know one another in their own countries, the young people are taking part in a peace camp in Döbriach, Austria, at the invitation of the Österreichischen Kinderfreunde, a non-governmental organization (NGO) for youngsters, the UN said. The camp winds up its work on Wednesday.
The delegates represent Hashomer Hatzair (Israel), Noar Oved Vehalomed (Israel), the Arab Youth Movement (Israel), the Palestine Red Crescent Society (Palestine), the Independent Youth Union (Palestine), Österreichische Kinderfreunde - Rote Falken (Austria) and Woodcraft Folk (United Kingdom), it said.
