Together We Are Safe
Moderator: Dr. Anji Ben Hamed
Together We Are Safe is a pioneering initiative led by Students from Ahlia University Bahrain as part of their marketing and management study course and under close academic supervision of Dr. Anji Ben Hamed, Director of Ahlia Centre for Entrepreneurship. Together We Are Safe emphasises on tolerance, acceptance, love and integrity, and to cleanse all types of extremism which lead us to build a culture filled with love, peace and togetherness. Students believe that all religions accept the others regardless of their colour, gender, nationality, faith, orientation and people live with each other and accept each others religions, by cleansing all types of religious extremism.
In this Big Interview, the President of Ahlia University (AU) Professor Mansoor Alaali discuss the strategic decision made by AU senior management to continue to offer the educational services to the students through e-learning mode and implemented the decision without any delay. AU offered the first online classes to its student community as early as on the 26th of February 2020; in less than a day since the lockdown was implemented by the Government of the Kingdom of Bahrain.

Sustainability International Conference 2009
In 2009, Ahlia University hosted WASD 7th Annual International Conference in Manama, Kingdom of Bahrain under the theme “The Impact of the Global Financial Crisis on the Environment, Energy and Sustainable Development“. The conference critically discussed and analysed the situation in the years following the 2008 financial crisis were marked with distrust, disorder, and mass re-regulation. Overlooked in this global crisis were the impacts the recession had left on pursuits towards sustainable development goals. Bringing together experience and research papers from across the world, the conference further investigated the greater and less evidently demonstrable impacts of the crisis.
