The initiative comes in line with the Ministry of Culture and Sport strategy to empower youth.

On the occasion of the selection “Doha - the Capital of Islamic Youth 2019” in recognition of Qatar's efforts in supporting and empowering the Islamic youth, the Ministry of Culture and Sports is set to organise an array of special events this year.
The activities will be held under the slogan ‘Youth is the Power of the Nation ’, and aim at strengthening the bonds of friendship and respect that the State of Qatar brings together with many countries in the world, especially the Islamic world. Doha hosts such events because it is a land of dialogue, tolerance, and openness to civilizations. The event meets the strategy of the Ministry of Culture and Sports that is based on empowering young people through implementation and management of activities and programs.
The Ministry of Culture and Sports employs all its capabilities, and experience in order to organise the activities of “Doha - the Capital of the Islamic Youth for 2019” under the supervision and organization of Qatar Center for Cultural and Heritage Events. Qatar is well known of its experience in organising the largest Arab, Islamic and international events.
Throughout Muslim history, Islamic youth have faced many challenges, including the challenges faced by the early Muslims who believed in the message of the Prophet (PBUH). Since then, young Muslims have continued to translate faith in the renaissance of the nation. The motto also reinforces the idea that in every civilizational cycle, youth play a leading role whenever they believe that change begins with self-change. It also reflects Doha's keenness to be a suitable place of choice for young people to interact and discusses the main issues that concern them, and to activate the conditions of empowerment for a better life for Islamic societies.
