A delegation of teenagers from the Peres Center for Peace traveled to Russia for the World Cup to hold workshops and soccer training for teens from all over the world, including from Arab nations.

The teens--from Jericho, Shoham, Tel Aviv and Be'er Sheva--taught their fellow teenagers from Qatar, Iraq and Tunisia how they promote peace and dialogue and allay suspicion through their shared love for the game of soccer.

The delegation, invited to Russia by FIFA, is staying with the other teens from all over the globe and holding soccer matches, which will culminate in the final on Saturday night at a soccer pitch set up especially in the center of the Red Square in Moscow.

The delegation is led by Lior Shalom from Tel Aviv, a project manager at the Peres Center for Peace, as well as coordinators Ahmad Roma from Jericho and Yael Tregerman from Rishon LeZion.
