Within this month's LINE forum, we will touch on 'ecologism', which centres on the necessity of "radical changes in our relationship" with the world. We will contrast this with 'environmentalism', described as a "managerial approach to environmental problems". To facilitate our understanding, together we will look at selected pieces of text from Andrew Dobson's book, 'Green Political Thought'. We will then consider what we have read in the light of relevant Islamic themes.
We will also hear feedback of experiences from 6 billion ways, will have a slot for 'Resource Cycle'
No charge and open to all - simply turn up for the start time. Donations welcome.
