MUSLIMS & THE ENVIRONMENTAL MOVEMENT: EXPLORING ASSUMPTIONS, BUILDING BRIDGES

Date: Sat Nov 21st 2009
Time: 2pm - 3.30pm
Venue: University of Manchester: On arrival the workshop information desk will be at: University Place, Oxford Road, Manchester, M13 9PL.

A workshop facilitated by LINE at the Shared Planet '09 Weekend Conference, organised by P&P (People & Planet).

This workshop will encourage reflection and dialogue on values and experiences of Muslim and non-Muslim activists. We will explore some of the following questions: What kind of issues might concern Muslims most? Where might ecological activism and corporate globalisation fit in? How can bridges be built between Muslims and more mainstream activists? What values do we share? How can we work together? We will acknowledge and honour diversity within social groups.

This is one of a number of workshops taking place at the conference. Online booking available.

The wider weekend conference will also feature: Allegra Stratton, (Guardian Journalist), Ann Pettifor (Advocacy International), Sajjad Karim MEP, Jean Lambert MEP, Paul Rowan MP, Jane Davidson AM and others, including many other workshops.

Please view the P&P website for ticket prices and more info.
