    12 October 2021

    The Islamic World Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ICESCO), will launch ICESCO International Think Tank for Thought, Letters and Arts, under the theme, “Culture for Rethinking the World.” The Think Tank will be launched on Thursday, October 14, 2021, with high-caliber participation including several ministers, university presidents, professors and specialists in the field.

    The launch ceremony will kick off at 09:00 UTC (10:00 Rabat Time), face-to-face at ICESCO headquarters and via videoconference. The event is part of the year-long ICESCO International Open Days, which will be hosted by a number of universities, research centers and cultural institutions in several countries.

It also seeks to render culture and knowledge a key lever for humans in light of the unfolding digital transformation and embrace a new cultural and creative approach likely to ensure linguistic and intellectual diversity.
