The Chair, the President of the 33rd General Conference of UNESCO and Counsellor Delegation of Oman to UNESCO, H.E. Dr. Moosa Jaafar Hassan, began the session offering a few initial words stating that the need for a new vision means that we need new strategies while not excluding other global tests. To form those new strategies we need to involve intellectuals, religious, academics, civil society in the support of policymakers. Concluding the session he commented that ‘‘I hope that UNESCO can learn from UPF in the way that you are working for peace’
Dr. Boutros Boutros-Ghali the Patron of the Conference, had to travel to Egypt at the last moment and his speech was read by his secretary, Dr. Sonia Ramzi. In his speech he reflected that small conflicts by unarmed groups can cause huge problems among civil populations. He referred to his initiative in 1992 to promote conflict prevention diplomacy and establish principles for conflict prevention. Photo Link

'Islamic Human Development of Science and the Better Understanding of the Environment'
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.
