Islam can offer a unique alternative perspective on environmental ethics that is deeply rooted in the Islamic tradition. Environmental ethics has been represented primarily in the Qur’an and Sunnah as well as commented on the scientific tradition. However, most of the literature on Islam, the environment, and climate change is theoretical and focuses on Islamic environmental ethics.
More and more research is emphasizing the importance of religion in understanding and dealing with climate change. However, little is known about the relationship between the Muslim community and climate change; solutions rooted in the Islamic tradition are rarely offered. Islam is under-represented in such environmental debates, maybe partly due to the lack of interest of Muslims in ecological issues.
The aims of the 1st Tangerang Islamic International Conference (TIIC) are:
Discusses the latest empirical research on the role and contribution of Islam in overcoming the issue of climate change/environment;
Exploring environmental ethics in Islam and its practice;
Make environmental issues that are often marginalized a part of mainstream attention and discussion.
Encourage religious organizations to work towards systematic change and bring environmental issues into mainstream discourse in Indonesia.
Provide insight into the global debate related to climate change to decision-makers, religious organizations fighting for environmental issues, and the Muslim community.
