Dr Lutfi RadwanWillowbrook Farm
Dr Lutfi Radwan spent the first half of his career as a lecturer and consultant at Oxford, working on soil and water management in arid zones. Subsequently, along with his wife Ruby, they turned their focus to home and in 2003 established Willowbrook Farm, in Oxfordshire, to put their values of responsible stewardship into practice.
Climate change, Environmentalism and Islam
Islam provides a framework for environmental stewardship based on the principle of Khilafah. This will be introduced to highlight the roots of the current environmental crisis. Key topics will be discussed from animal welfare to sustainable building and waste recycling with examples from Willowbrook Farm. A call will be made to Muslims to wake up to this responsibility and engage with radical efforts to address the social and environmental crises we face.
