2010, the Royal Aal al-Bayt Institute for Islamic Thought in
cooperation with the Eugen-Biser Foundation (Germany) held a symposium
entitled ‘Islam, Christianity and the Environment’ at the Baptism Site
The symposium was another event in the series of dialogues driven by the
global Muslim-Christian interfaith initiative, A Common Word
It brought together a small group of Muslim and Christian scholars to discuss how each religion views the environment.
This exchange helped both sides achieve a better understanding of each
others’ perspective, and also led to a strengthening of the response
from all faiths to the current environmental crisis. All participants
ended the event by endorsing HE Archbishop of Sweden Anders Wejrud’s
environmental initiative, [The Uppsala Manifesto], which calls for
religious communities to rally toward a global climate strategy.
This booklet brings together four papers presented at the symposium.
