Many people in Israel & Palestine either do not believe that the conflict can end, or do not understand the urgency with which it must. Imagine 2018 is a bold initiative asking citizens to visualise Israel & Palestine in 2018- either positively or negatively- and urge them to build their own future
It ran from 12:00 AM, 1 May 2010 to 12:00 AM, 1 December 2011

Israelis & Palestinians disagree about many things, but one shared feeling that resonates across both societies is a deep cynicism, scepticism and hopelessness about the future & the prospects for peace. Yet peace is attainable & a two state solution is viable- but time is running out. Ordinary citizens need to see what is possible, understand the compromises needed to get there, & the role they can play as individuals; they must also understand that this window of opportunity is closing fast.
We will ask Israelis & Palestinians three key questions: 1. What will 2018 look like? People must visualise the future- both the positive & negative possible 2018s- they may live in. Peace, security, prosperity & legitimacy; or violence, stagnation, isolation & hopelessness. 2. What will it take? Both futures are possible. Compromises will be needed to enable the positive future to emerge. 3. What is your role? Every citizen has a role, & the power to make a difference. People matter.
