Wisdom In Nature was established in 2004, and is a UK-based Islamic ecology and community group. Our original name was the London Islamic Network for the Environment (LINE). We are committed to the transformation of society to live justly in harmony with the diverse natural world, of which we are a part, thus honouring the principle of Oneness ( Tawhid ). Our approach is both practical and contemplative. We use bottom-up processes and consensus-decision-making for much of our work, finding ways of equalising power and ensuring our processes and actions are owned by those directly involved. This deeper democratic approach reflects our commitment to mirroring the world we wish to live in, whilst being established in core Islamic principles. This is also supported by mindfulness of our sources of funding which supports us in being independent of corporate interest and government influence.
Information about WIN's work and ethos along with expectations around volunteering and teamwork can be found on our website, especially the who are we and the volunteering/teamwork pages. You might like to familiarise yourself with these if applying.
