About the Learning to be a Peacemaker course

Learning to be a Peacemaker (LPM) is a training course designed by Imam and broadcaster, Ajmal Masroor.

Its aim is to offer:

  • Knowledge – providing factual information about the peacemaking culture in Islam and the wider context
  • Connection – offering relationship-building opportunities between young European Muslims and their counterparts in wider society
  • Dialogue – empowering young European Muslims and their peers of other beliefs to hold honest conversations
  • Networking – connecting young people across Europe who may find shared inspiration to take initiatives for peacemaking and building trust across divides

Peace and justice are the two most sacred principles which underpin every aspect of a Muslim’s life. Therefore becoming a peacemaker is the most important role a Muslim can play. Learning about peace and justice is the first step towards this goal.

This programme believes that learning to be a peacemaker is key to developing a confident European Muslim identity and contributing towards global change.

If you are aged 18-30 and passionate about the future of global change and Muslims’ contribution to it, then the Learning to be a Peacemaker programme is for you!
