The Australia Israel Friendship Forest in Shorashim is an ideal location for the Wilderness Leadership Academy. The Jewish National Fund has done much for the building up of the State of Israel. And yet, it is perceived internationally as a problematic organization due to the Palestinian narrative. There exists an opportunity to transform the conflict at this beautiful location where narratives can come together and learn from each other how to take leadership for a shared future.
The 2040 Plan of KKL (JNF in Israel) in Israel is fully understanding of the need to work with all the different sectors of Israeli society.
November 2020 Update
The Wilderness Leadership Academy will be a long term programming goal of the Spirit of the Galilee Association (Amuta). The Foundation is working with Outward Bound New York on instructors coming out to advise the initial stage of the project in February of 2021. Our new Board of Directors has been installed.

Information on Bob Carr and his involvement in the Middle East Peace Process
The Australia Israel Friendship Forest is also known as the Bob Carr Forest
Carr secured Australian Government support for abstention on a motion before the UN General Assembly to grant observer state status to the Palestinian Authority. This represented a shift from Australia's previous opposition to the motion, championed by then-Prime Minister Julia Gillard. Carr argued that abstention on the motion allowed Australia to "reach out to moderate Palestinians who want a peaceful solution [to conflict with Israel] and say we're not opposing you." The UN motion to grant observer state status for the Palestinian Authority was ultimately carried by 138 votes to nine, with 41 abstentions.
In January 2013, in a joint communique with UK Foreign Secretary William Hague, Carr called for US leadership in resuming direct talks between Israelis and Palestinians. The communique also noted that both countries had voted to abstain on the UN motion on Palestinian status and that both viewed Israeli settlements on the West Bank as illegal under international law.
