Interfaith Outreach

Climate change is a challenge that will require all faith groups to work towards a common goal. 

Let's start the journey together. 


Let's work together

This year, the theme of the Green Khutbah Campaign is Climate Change: Working Together to Solve a Global Challenge; whereby we encourage Muslims to evaluate their contribution towards global warming and consider the implications for current and future generations.

However, the challenge of climate change is larger than any one faith, which is why we invite other communities to join the Green Khutbah Campaign. Working together towards a common goal not only breaks down barriers, but promotes better understanding of each other faith traditions while tackling climate change.  

Please see below for resource material to help you deliver a Green Khutbah in your community.
