Our Mosques Our Future - Midlands 2019

#OurYouthOurFuture

12 October, 10am-6pm, Leicester City Football Club

About 50% of British Muslims are aged 24 years old or younger. But unfortunately for many young British Muslims, their local mosque is not perceived as an exciting or attractive place to hang out or spend time at.

Are our mosques investing in young people?

Do they have a say in what activities take place inside the mosque?

Do they feel a sense of belonging at the mosque?

Join us on 12 October 2019 for an action-packed day of videos, talks, exhibitions and workshops to explore these and similar questions! #OurYouthOurFuture
