Caring for the Creation
April 22 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join us on Earth Day, Friday April 22nd live on Instagram with Sevim Kalyoncu to discuss “Caring for Creation.” Sevim and Selaedin will discuss our responsibility to give back to the earth and community by means of decreasing waste, reusing, involving ourselves within our communities, and developing personal connections with nature.
Green Muslims is a Washington, DC-based nonprofit organization working to help connect the American Muslim community with nature and climate action. She speaks at local mosques, leads educational nature hikes, and puts together Meaningful Watershed Education Experiences (MWEEs) through Green Muslims’ Our Deen (Faith) is Green! youth education program. Through this work, she strives to encourage a spiritual connection with nature as well as environmental and climate awareness that is rooted in an Islamic understanding of environmental stewardship. In addition to her work with Green Muslims, Sevim teaches various outdoor classes through Montessori and homeschool programs and volunteers as a Virginia Master Naturalist.
