Exploration of Theme:

The Toda Institute for Global Peace and Policy Research and the Rabita Mohammadia des Oulémas (Muhammadan League of Scholars) co-organized an international conference in Rabat, Morocco, on February 4 and 5, 2011. The theme was: Global Visioning for a Common Future: Hopes, Challenges and Solutions. Speakers from around the world presented ideas and proposals to enhance global visioning, they were asked to conjure up a compelling vision for a harmonious planetary future, to expose the impediments and obstacles that seem to make this vision impossible to realize, and to propose concrete and feasible steps towards the fulfillment of their vision.
