A lecture prepared for the Universal Peace Federation's European Leadership Conference in UNESCO Paris, "A New Vision for Peace and Human Development"
12th to 13th April 2012 at UNESCO Headquarters, Place de Fontenoy, Paris.
Human Development occurs all the time that a person is alive in any nation or culture. Although it is believed that the issues of development are more relevant for those who are considered to be “less developed”. The Muslim world are the second largest in the world covering mainly 1.8 Billion Muslims but torn between forces of traditionalism and modernity. Some Muslim countries are in transition due to rise of Arab spring recently. Islamic culture is very rich as it has made a very valuable contribution in human development in science and better understanding of our world.

“We need to restore people’s interconnectedness through reviving our sense of being part of a community”, concluded a small but enthusiastic group of nearly 20 Ambassadors for Peace and UPF associates who convened at the Peace Embassy, Thornton Heath, on 17 March to explore the topic of Wellbeing and Sustainability. Introducing the theme, Lance Gardiner, as MC for the proceedings, highlighted Prime Minister David Cameron’s directive in November 2010 to the Office of National Statistics to devise measures of wellbeing which would eventually feed back into informing and directing national policy.
