The olive harvest initiative launched on 14 October to reaffirm the commitment to justice and peace in the Holy Land by the Christian fellowship continues unabated throughout the harvest season. On Wednesday 21 October the World Council of Churches hosts a webinar open to the public covering the cultural, economic and spiritual aspects of the olive harvest.  

Influential voices from local communities will participate to shed light on a broad array of issues from different perspectives, such as human rights, gender, youth and economic prosperity. All in the framework of the olive harvest season, the traditions around it and the delicate circumstances under which olive crops are being harvested, processed and distributed to end consumers.
