The Islamic World Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ICESCO) took part in the Misk Global Forum 2022, held by Mohammed Bin Salman Foundation (Misk), in Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, on 9-10 November 2022. The Forum saw high-caliber participation including ministers from several countries, officials, representatives of international and regional organizations, experts, entrepreneurs, innovators and young creators from different parts of the world who gathered to exchange knowledge and experiences and break barriers to create impactful discussion that leads to change and accentuates the role of the youth in societies.
The Forum, which saw the participation of an ICESCO delegation consisting of experts and staff members from different sectors, departments and centers, featured discussion panels chaired by leaders, inspiring youth and innovators, and youth interactive sessions to promote constructive dialogue and exchange ideas and information among participants. It also featured a skills lab to build youth’s capacities and orientation platforms for professional growth to provide advice to young people regarding their careers. Moreover, the Forum was marked by the organization of the Misk Exhibition, which aimed to give an overview of the Misk Foundation and highlight its future projects, all through an interactive and comprehensive experience.
On the sidelines of the Forum, the ICESCO delegation held a meeting with Ms. Alyaa Kabbani, Project Manager at Misk Foundation, where the delegation highlighted ICESCO’s efforts in the fields of education, science and culture, as well as its initiatives and programs geared towards building the capacities of young people, notably the Young Professionals Program, whose first edition was launched this November. For her part, Ms. Kabbani reaffirmed the Foundation’s keenness to promote cooperation and partnership with ICESCO through future coordination to implement a set of programs and projects relevant to building youth’s capacities and supporting them in the fields of innovation and modern technology.
This year’s edition of the Forum falls as part of the celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Foundation, a non-profit that aims to support young talents and hone their skills through its strategy to foster pioneering ideas and equip young people with the necessary skills to find the best solutions for present and future challenges.
