About Me In BRIEF: Eco-Jihadist (Struggler for Creation)
LONGER version: Ms Rianne C. ten Veen is a humanitarian aidworker with research and environment specialisms. After a decade at Islamic Relief Worldwide, she now works with Osman Consulting Ltd and is also an Associate Lecturer at the Open University, teaching on interdisciplinary modules around environment, ethics and development and taught on the final presentation of 'Islam in the West - the politics of coexistence'.

She focuses on faith/ environment/ development projects: she is a member of the management team of Islamic Foundation for Ecology & Environment Sciences (IFEES), and co-founded 'Faith and Climate Change' (a Birmingham Friends of the Earth project; this project was a finalist in NESTA's Big Green Challenge and won The Guardian's Community Hero award - now being replaced by wider EARTH: Environment And Religions Transformation Hub) and was the Environment lead on the Committee of the Birmingham Council of Faiths. In 2009, she self-published a 'save cash& planet' style book from Islamic perspective: '199 ways to please God, how to (re-)align your daily life with your duty of care to Creation' (ISBN: 978-1844266296) and set up Green Creation. She is a Trustee at TreeAid and Board Member at Groundwork W-Midlands.

She has an LLM, an MA in International Politics, a Post-Graduate Diploma in Environmental Policy and a Post-Graduate Diploma in Development Management. Finances permitting, she would love to spend more time on a PhD on Islam & Environment: comparing the humanitarian aid principle of 'do no harm' with the Islamic principle of 'la darar' (do no harm) with regards to sustainable development.

Specialties: faith & environment; islam & environment; poverty & environment; Creation care; ecoaudit; sustainable development; ethics; human rights
