MedWetCoast Egypt
training course for mosque preachers on "nature conservation in Islam"
Wednesday 30 June 2004, by Web Team

(JPEG) Out of the project’s desire for grass-root participation, a training course for mosque preachers on "nature conservation in Islam" was held in Burullus protectorate, Egypt, on 20/ 6/ 2004, and was attended by 25 local mosque preachers.

The course started off with lectures by renowned environmentalist and Project’s Chief Advisor Dr. Mohamed El Kassass, a native of the area. Project Manager Dr. Esam El Badry, Dr. Ahmed Baraneya Professor of Fishery Economics at the Institute of National Planning, Mr. Hussein El Imam Director of Training at the Egyptian Environmental Affairs Agency EEAA and PAM Fayed El Shamly, were on the panel.

The lectures were followed by a workshop in which the trainees worked in groups to develop Friday Prayer speeches (preaching) that addressed environmental issues; namely, conservation of Lake Burullus. The result was astounding, as each of the speeches effectively reflected the environmental concerns of the project in Burullus.

A similar seminar that will include more preachers from the area, may be planned soon.
