Your Guide for a Sustainable Ramadan
The Islamic month of fasting, Ramadan, is a month of consciousness and reflection. Therefore it offers us an ideal opportunity to think about our consumption pattern and behaviour towards our environment. This guide provides mosque and student communities with the basic guidelines for organising an Iftar event in a sustainable and environmentally friendly manner. At the same time this guide offers concrete tips and tricks regarding the Green Iftar Goals (GIGs), which we hope will stimulate a sustainable way of thinking and a sustainable behaviour in Ramadan.
Towards the end of the guide, a best practice example is included which details the important measures to be taken. In order to keep track of all the arrange- ments, a checklist has been provided at the end of the handbook. We hope to make a sustainable contributi- on with this handbook. We wish you all the best!
