WCIT 2016 carried the theme of “Future World” with the hope of laying the foundations and guidelines for the Muslims to venture out and seek meanings to what truly constitutes as their future world. In 2017, WCIT took upon “Global Peace” with the deliberate intention of seeking the notions of the conditions of peace, prosperity, and human decency for the world to come, our future world.
2018 saw WCIT taking on a new approach. WCIT 2018 was intentionally conceived to be comparatively more practical, pragmatic, and programmatic in its approach to issues being discoursed rather than being purely theoretical, academic and rhetorical. That, it was hope, would enable us to translate all theories, academic idealism, and high-sounding rhetoric into real life works and activities, an approach that ensures long-term sustainability. The conference of 2018, Securing the Future, was intended to focus more on what it could offer in terms of real life experiences; takeaways that could be followed up with actual social programs of action for direct and immediate implementation.
Unfortunately WCIT2020 had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But we continue in 2022. For our 2022 Conference, WCIT intends to maintain the trajectory of looking toward the future world by harmonizing the upcoming 2022 theme with previous themes of Global Peace and Securing the Future. For that purpose, the Conference Secretariat proposes that WCIT 2022 deliberates on “Sharing Our Humanity”.
