What We Do
Green Muslims’ educational programming offers a space for Muslims to learn about the environmental spirit inherent in Islam, from the responsibilities humans have as caretakers of the earth to the role nature plays in our own spiritual development.
Our deen is green! (oDIG)
Since 2015, Green Muslims has led Our Deen is Green! (ODIG) environmental education programs for youth in the Washington, DC, metro area. Through our ODIG programing, local youth are exposed to the beauty of nature, while learning about their responsibilities towards the environment and the role that connecting with the earth plays in their faith.
This summer’s ODIG will be a special interfaith Meaningful Watershed Educational Experience (MWEE) for children ages 9-12, where kids of various faith perspectives will come together to explore why nature, in general, and the Chesapeake Bay Watershed, in particular, are important to us and what we can do to connect with and protect the earth.
Hikes and Service Activities
