Green Up Award

The Green Up! Award Scheme supports your school, mosque or Islamic institute to make a commitment to work towards becoming more environmentally friendly.

Green Up! is the UK’s first eco-award scheme for mosques and Islamic groups which has been supported by a host of prominent community leaders including

  • Mufti Ismail Menk (Mufti, Zimbabwe)
  • Shaykh Waleed Basyouni (Vice President, Al Maghrib Institute)
  • Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad (Dean, Cambridge Muslim College)
  • Julie Siddiqi (Executive Director of Islamic Society of Britain)
  • Farooq Murad (Secretary General of Muslim Council of Britain)
  • Ustadha Zaufishan Iqbal (The EcoMuslim)

As part of the Green Up! Scheme you’ll be joining a nationwide community of Muslims who are working hard to live up to Islam’s high environmental standards.

The Green Up! Award is part of Green Up My Community! a joint campaign with FEMYSO (Federation of Muslim Youth & Student Organisations) across eight European countries.
