“Thus We have appointed you a middle nation.” (Qur’an, Surah Baqarah, 2:143)
The multi-national event was hosted by British eco-Muslim Dr. Husna Ahmad OBE (who brought us the World Green Hajj Guide) and (). The whole conference was about Muslim "Khalifas" leading their own communities as true ecological and social pioneers.Here are a few keynote speakers and their thought-provoking action plans.
This year’s theme will be “World Muslim Leaders: The Next Generation” and will focus on Muslim youth leadership with particular reference to democracy and governance, sustainable development and the “middle path” within an Islamic context. ...By engaging with both current and future leaders to discuss and debate issues that affect the younger Muslim generations globally, we hope to find some best practices and solutions, and opportunities for sharing experiences and networking. - WMLF 2012
