The 2008 Building Bridges award was presented to ‘A Common Word’ on the occasion of the 1st Catholic-Muslim Forum Conference held in Vatican City.

AMSS (UK) has introduced a prestigous awardcalled Building Bridges awards, that are intended to recognise and highlight the achevement of individuals who have made a significant contribution to Islamic thought and promotion

Building Bridges Award for 2008 was presented to ‘A Common Word’ project on 3rd November 2008 on the occasion of the 1st Catholic-Muslim Forum Conference, 4th-6th November, Vatican City. The Award was presented by Dr. Anas S. Al-Shaikh-Ali, Chair of AMSS (UK). The importance of A Common Word Between Us and You, and Pope Benedict XVI’s esteemed support, signal a new era of mutual respect and harmony between the Abrahamic faiths. Living and working together in diversity is a challenge and religious beliefs and differences in cultures can sometimes give rise to deep-seated negativities.

The Common Word project is a superb initiative to not only generate awareness, understanding, and respect, but also, and most importantly, establish trust through promoting interfaith dialogue, conflict resolution and intellectual discourse.
