Islamic approaches to the natural world and the natural sciences

10:00am-1:00pm on Saturday 16 March

Times shown are in GMT (UTC +0) up to the 26th March. For events on or after 27th March times are in BST (UTC +1).

Cambridge Central Mosque, 309-313 Mill Rd, CB1 3DF

This event takes place at the Cambridge Central Mosque, which is the first eco-Mosque in Europe and hosts a permanent exhibition on 'Islam & Science'.

Integrating these two themes (i.e. environment and science), Dr Pettinato and Dr El Yousfi from the Centre of Islamic Studies introduce members of the public to how Muslims have traditionally approached the natural world and the natural sciences.

Collectively, participants are encouraged to reflect on how principles derived from the Islamic tradition can contribute addressing some of the most pressing environmental and scientific issues of our era. Between the two talks, a guided tour of the mosque and its Islamic gardens takes place, to illustrate how these principles have been translated into its built environment.

People can participate any or all the sessions, each of which lasts around 45 minutes. Due to space limitations, registration is required.
