Inspired by faith, on a struggle to do my 2p/ cents to be guardian of Creation.

Background Information

Born on the European continent, brought up in several countries, I feel like a 'global nomad'. Although a 'city girl' I've always felt an attraction to 'save the planet'. In her day job I am a humanitarian aidworker (with additional task of being organisation's Environmental Focal Point). Outside my day job, I focus on faith & environment projects: I am a member of the management team of Islamic Foundation for Ecology & Environment Sciences (IFEES), member of Steering Groups of 'Engage' (a CSV Environment project) and 'Faith and Climate Change' (a Birmingham Friends of the Earth project; this project was a finalist in NESTA's Big Green Challenge and won The Guardian's Community Hero award) and the Environment lead on the Committee of the Birmingham Council of Faiths. In 2009, I self-published a 'save cash& planet' style book from Islamic perspective: '199 ways to please God, how to (re-)align your daily life with your duty of care to Creation' (ISBN: 978-1844266296) and set up Green Creation. I am also an Associate Lecturer at the Open University on an interdisciplinary course on environment (Environment: journeys through a changing world), and Islam in the West. I have an LLM, an MA in International Politics, an MSc in Development Management and a PGDip in Environmental Policy. Finances permitting, I would love to do a PhD on Islam & Environment: comparing the humanitarian aid principle of 'do no harm' with the Islamic principle of 'la darar' (do no harm) with regards to sustainable development.


I achieved three master degrees (one in Law, one in International Politics, one in Development Management) and a Post-Graduate Diploma in Environmental Policy
