The event started with lesson on environmental care from Anthony Darragh whereby they were encouraged to take care of the environment as a call to respond to Pope Francis encyclical letter “Laudato Sii”, which invites us to respect the environment as our common home.

Imam Sheikh Mahamoud Abdallah urged that according to the Muslim teachings God requires everyone to respect every soul because He is the source of all mankind and animals.

On the other hand Rehema, a Muslim leader, said that God had a purpose of creating everything and putting it in its respective place for His glory; therefore as His creation we should continue His work and not abuse it.
