As a sequel to Working with the Media guide released in 2008, this is the second in a series of training manuals produced by The Cordoba Foundation. The guide provides the targeted  readership with practical guidelines and tips to ‘up-skilling’ with the necessary information, tools and guidance to become not just active but proactive citizens – and ultimately to play a better and more effective role in society.

The guide aims to give our readers, in particular British Muslims, the knowledge and confdence to engage with lobbyists, politicians, campaigns and people of infuence to bring about changes – from addressing national and international issues by lobbying MPs and Ministers, to local issues such as services provided to the surrounding community and residential areas.

Event Report – UN Day of Peace 2013

Event Report – UN Day of Peace 2013

Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on 21 September. The General  Assembly of the United Nations declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both  within and among all nations and peoples. The International Day of Peace was established in 1981.

During the International Day of Peace, local schools, churches, synagogues, temples, gurdwaras and  community organisations are invited to observe the day by accepting visitors. Last year, thousands of  Islamic centres in the UK and overseas led their local communities in observing the day.

This year, on Friday 20 September, the London  Muslim Centre and The Cordoba Foundation  invited visitors from various organisations after  Friday Prayers (Salaatul-Jumu’a) to exchange  messages of peace, to celebrate local peace-building activities and to enjoy the hospitality offered.
