TUUMS celebrate Islam Awareness Week

ON 18 October, the Tasmanian University Union Muslim Society (TUUMS) distributed free plants at the University of Tasmania Sandy Bay campus as a part of Islam Awareness Week.

The theme of this year’s event was ‘Islam and the Environment,’ emphasising the religious teachings of sustainability.

The event concluded with a dinner and inter-faith dialogue where representatives of different faiths including Christianity, Osho, Brahma Kumari, Islam and Universal Dance of Peace spoke about the importance of sustainability.

TUUMS organises a variety of events throughout the University calendar year to promote intercultural awareness.

This year, it organised the first ever ‘Multicultural Eid’ festival in June to celebrate the ending of Muslim Eid-ul-fitr.

Around 350 people from different local community groups joined in at the event to celebrate the end of the fasting period.

This event was supported by the Multicultural Council of Tasmania.
