The ‘Earth Talk’ series is held every two months and features influential local and global experts who discuss a wide range of topics related to sustainability.

Held at Bin Jelmoud House, the lecture covered an introduction to Islamic Environmental Ethics, its practical applications, and its role in addressing the climate crisis.

Three keynote speeches were delivered by H.E. Mr. Ahmed Mohamed Al-Sada, Assistant Undersecretary, Ministry of Environment and Climate Change, (MoECC), HE Mr Timmy T. Davis, U.S. Ambassador to the State of Qatar, and Mr. Abdulla Al-Naama, Manager Msheireb Museums. The main presentation and talk were by Mark Bryant (Abdallah Bryant), Senior Consultant, Islamic Foundation for Ecology and Environmental Science and EcoIslam, United Kingdom.

H.E. Mr. Ahmed Mohamed Al-Sada said that environmental protection is an important aspect of Islam and other regions, highlighting the responsibility of Muslims to care for the environment proactively. “Protection of the environment is an integral part of Islamic beliefs, and mankind has the responsibility to safeguard nature. We must take all necessary measures to ensure the preservation and protection of the environment and should pass this value to our coming generations in the best way possible.”

Mr. Abdulla Al-Naama, Manager Msheireb Museums highlighted the role of Msheireb Museums in raising awareness of such topics and promoting sustainability among community members. “The Earth Talks series is informative and insightful, with the second lecture focusing on introducing Islamic Environmental Ethics and its practical applications in addressing the climate crisis.
