"I was born in the middle of a blizzard. I love every season because each comes with its own blessings. I love cats and spiders. My wife thinks I'm crazy when I talk to them. I love my wife. The planet is my home, and yours too. Together, we can protect, maintain, and respect it. How we treat the planet is a reflection of how we treat ourselves. And that's why I'm a pedestrian. There's nothing better than walking on the Earth as God intended."
For the past ten years, Ibrahim has been a passionate voice for transforming our pollution based way of life to one that prioritizes our planet and its people. He is author of the new book, "Green Deen: What Islam Teaches About Protecting the Planet," published by Berrett-Koehler.
Ibrahim's dedication to the environment is rooted in his Deen - his religion of Islam. Ibrahim is an environmental policy consultant and has worked with Green for All, Green City Force, Interfaith Leaders for Environmental Justice, the Prospect Park Alliance, and the New York City Mayor's Office of Long Term Planning & Sustainability.
Ibrahim is also a youth organizer and co-author of "Future 500: Youth Organizing and Activism in the United States." He is the brains behind the blog, Brooklyn Bedouin and media personality on WNYC's nationally syndicated radio show, The Takeaway.
