    ICESCO and Saudi Ministry of Culture Sign Executive Program for Youth Capacity Building and Training

    18 May 2024

    The Islamic World Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ICESCO) and the Saudi Ministry of Culture, represented by the National Commission for Education, Culture, and Science, signed an executive program aimed at providing training opportunities for Saudi youth within ICESCO’s sectors, centers, and departments. This initiative seeks to familiarize them with the Organization’s role and operational mechanisms, enhance their capabilities, and expose them to the work environment of international organizations and institutions.

    The Agreement was signed on 17 May 2024 by Dr. Salim Al Habsi, Head of the General Secretariat of National Commissions and Conferences at ICESCO, and Mr. Ahmed bin Abdulaziz AlBlihed, Secretary-General of the Saudi National Commission for Education, Culture, and Science, on the sidelines of the 27th session of the General Conference of the Arab League Educational, Cultural and Scientific Organization (ALECSO) held in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

    The two-year executive program focuses on exchanging expertise and capacity building by providing training opportunities for Saudi competences in the cultural sector. It also explores the possibility of establishing training programs at ICESCO for candidates nominated by the Saudi National Commission. The program aims to develop trainees’ capacities, evaluate their progress, and equip them with new skills and knowledge to enhance their professional and intellectual abilities. Additionally, it seeks to train them in leadership in education, science, culture, and communication.

    The executive program outlines methods for preparing and implementing training programs through the exchange of visits between official delegations and experts specialized in conducting studies and research in education, culture, and science. It includes organizing training programs, workshops, and seminars for specialists and forming a joint working team from both sides.
