Mosaic’s third International Summit took place on November 2011 with 96 young leaders from 17 countries meeting in Doha, Qatar to participate in a two week leadership development opportunity. Mr. Shahid Rehmat, member of the Christian community of Pakistan and president of Interfaith Youth in Action /World Faith Pakistan, participated in the summit for the first time to represent our interfaith and cross culture initiatives.
The Summit aims for delegates:
1) to develop leadership ability and an aspiration to be an agent of change
2) to develop understanding of key global issues and inspire positive thinking to address them
A critical part of the leadership programme follows the Summit, where participants are supported in their leadership journey by Mosaic. Participants report back on their development and community work every 3 months for a year following the Summit and take an active part in Mosaic’s international network.
The Summit was held from November 14 to 24, 2011 in Doha, Qatar. The workshops, activities and lectures that took place in the first week covered issues such as environmental sustainability, global poverty, inter-cultural relations and leadership skills. The second week was then spent on local projects in which participants had the chance to visit projects of the Qatar Foundation, British Council, Qatar Shell, Aspire Zone, etc and their contributions in the community development initiative at local and regional levels.
