Mosaic International Summit 2010
For the second time, 80 young international leaders gathered at Clare College Cambridge for the Mosaic International Leadership Programme. The workshops, activities and lectures that take place in the first week covered issues such as environmental sustainability, global poverty and inter-cultural relations. During the programme, the delegates met with a wide range of speakers from around the world including Farah Pandith, Special Advisor to Muslim Communities for the US State Department and Sir Fazle Hasan Abed, Chair of BRAC and HRH Princess Badiya bint el Hassan, previous Chairman of Mosaic. Delegates were encouraged to think about how the small differences they make at home can contribute to addressing problems on a much wider scale. The second week was then spent on regional study tours to Manchester, Bradford, London and Birmingham during which the participants had the chance to visit projects in the UK which brought to life the issues that had been discussed. The Summit ended with delegates meeting HRH The Prince of Wales who encouraged them to apply their larning to their local communities upon their return home.
