Invitation and Call: European Muslim Eco Lab (EMEL)
Saturday, December 17, 2022
1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. (CET Central European Time)

Climate change is a growing global challenge. Muslim communities have reacted to this and initiated projects for more environmental awareness; research investigates issues of climate change that affect Muslims in different contexts.
In order to promote these developments and to enable synergies, the Interdisciplinary Research Center Islam and Muslims in Europe at Sigmund Freud Private University initiated an annual meeting in 2021 to present current projects and organizations and to discuss research desiderata. The aim is to promote the exchange of ideas, to publicize new initiatives as well as possible cooperations in scientific projects. The presentations will be summarized in a report (German & English).
Addressed are persons from science, the education of young learners, adolescents and adults, religious education, mosque communities, (environmental) organizations and civil society, as well as interested persons from the general public.
We cordially invite you to present on environmental issues in Muslim lifeworlds in the form of a scientific paper or a report:

a) Europe-related

  • a research project, a scientific institution, or a final thesis
  • an organization, NGO or initiative
  • a (popular) scientific or literary publication

b) worldwide

  • organizations and initiatives of a country of your choice

We ask for your registration as a participant* or presenter at until November 25, 2022 and look forward to your contribution. You will receive a link in good time.
Presenters are requested to send an abstract (max. 500 words) by September 30, 2022.
Due to the event format, no fee will be paid nor expenses refunded.
