Common Purpose is a non-governmental organization founded in the UK that administers global leadership development programs in around 100 countries worldwide. Its mission centers around nurturing leaders capable of transcending boundaries within their local and international communities. The organization empowers these individuals with the essential knowledge, skills, and motivation needed to address complex issues, foster strong teams, and spearhead change in society.
Embracing the belief that diverse leadership is the key to resolving societal challenges, Common Purpose encourages its program participants from various backgrounds and sectors to foster collaboration, innovation, and creative problem-solving. In 2012, Ibrahim was invited by name to participate in an intensive leadership course hosted by the British Council in Libya—the program aimed to enhance participants' abilities to lead amidst complex and diverse circumstances. Later, he was certified as a leader in architectural initiatives.
As part of his responsibilities, Ibrahim spearheaded multiple public events, lectures, and presentations focusing on raising awareness about the right approach to reconstructing the country post the 2011 revolution. These discussions highlighted the importance of sustainability and accessibility for all through inclusive design, underlining the roadmap to rebuilding the nation effectively. Unfortunately, those events were stopped because Ibrahim received killing threats from terrorist groups in Benghazi. As they said, he was spreading "infidel Western ideas" since he brought several examples of urban reconstruction from Europe and America in his lectures!
