Future Perspectives on Sustainability and Stewardship in the Muslim World

Welcome to the Ramadan Majlis Nights, presented in collaboration with Dubai Future Labs. Join us for three evenings of enlightening discussions held in the lobby of the Museum of the Future, from March 16 to March 30, during the holy month of Ramadan!

Delve into a unique exploration of how Islamic principles can shape and guide the future of innovation and research. Our series of discussions will revolve around the rich heritage of Islamic ethics, intertwining them with contemporary scientific advancement and policy-making.

Against the backdrop of Dubai's pioneering R&D program, which provides a roadmap for sustainable and socially responsible innovation, our speakers will include Islamic scholars, international academics, and UAE thought leaders.

In Session 2, titled " Future Perspectives on Sustainability and Stewardship in the Muslim World," our audience will embark on a visionary exploration of the intersection between sustainability, stewardship, and the future within the context of the Muslim world. This session aims to unveil the fundamental perspectives and initiatives that can shape the trajectory of environmental responsibility and sustainable practices in the Muslim community. We are honored to have Dr. Reema Al Qaruty, Prof. Odeh Al-Jayyousi and Manal Bahman as our panelists, moderated by the Dean of Dubai Future Academy, Dr. Mohamed Qasem.
