LINE at the climate camp

LINE are one of my favourite environmental groups! although as a good solid non believer I have been quite impressed by the local C of E....in terms of ecology, social justice, critical thought...any way do try and get along to the LINE event at climate camp

Peace and warm greetings all,

Below are two notices of upcoming events. One is the LINE workshop at the Climate Camp, happening this Sunday. The other is for a joint event with Green Sundays, combining Islam, ecology and culture.

I'd also like to take this chance to wish you Ramadan Mubarak, on behalf of the whole of the LINE team.

Hoping to see you at camp!

Best wishes,

Wasi - on behalf of the LINE team

We hope you can join us for this exciting workshop during the month of Ramadan. Within the workshop, we hope to make space to explore some of the following questions: How do Muslims and Islam view climate change? How do Muslim ecological activists view the climate movement? How does the climate movement view Muslims? What are the values that we share? How can we hope to work together?
