Eco-Islam Next in Inside Islam Radio Series

Last December, we posted an overview of Eco-Islam development and related projects under way around the world. One commenter mentioned the name Seyyed Hossein Nasr and added that he has been speaking about “green” issues and Islam since the early 1960s. Since the next program in our Inside Islam radio series produced by Here on Earth: Radio Without Borders is about Eco-Islam as well, we thought it would be a great idea to ask him to tell us more about the movement.

On March 26, host Jean Feraca unearths the Eco-Islam movement with Professor Seyyed Hossein Nasr as a guest for the live radio broadcast. We have created a radio show page here on Inside Islam with ways to listen and participate. So, if you have an idea for another guest, a specific project to highlight, or a comment to add, please leave us a message or send it by email. The page will be updated with your ideas and comments may even be read by Jean on the air.
