OTI Community Trips

  Join the Staff of the Olive Tree Initiative on our Community Trips to explore historic and present-day political, economic and cultural relations. Community Trips are open to ALL those interested in the OTI experience, typically "post-graduation". There is no "application process" and the costs are inclusive of transportation, meetings, entrance fees and lodging in 4 star, or better, accommodations.



We are pleased to announce our upcoming Community Trip to the UK, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, May 15 - 27, 2017. 

OTI Community Trip participants will learn about the Historical, Cultural and Political conflict that endured for generations and resulted in many deaths, violence and enmity. We will study how the various actors were eventually able to come to a peaceful resolution of their conflict and will meet the actors involved as well as those who continue to work on building relations between these two countries and their people.  Our itinerary includes visits/stays in London, Glasgow, Dublin and Belfast.

A deposit will be required by December 31st to hold a spot for this special trip.
