January Talk: What is Ecotheology?: Religion, Spiritualism, and Nature


2021 ended with a much needed thunderstorm on the peninsula, and hopefully the rain will change the dry desert scenery in the coming weeks. It will be interesting to document this change.

Unfortunately, because of the rising concerns over a new wave of COVID and the recent strain of new restrictions, we have to put our rambles on hold until further notice, but we invite you to enjoy responsibly some family outings. Please, don’t hesitate to share your discoveries.

To start 2022, we’re very grateful to have our members Alan Weber and Diana Woodcock as speakers on a deep and meaningful topic.

All the best,


Date & Time: Wednesday, January 12th, video Conferencing  Starting at 7 pm. 

Speakers: TAlan S. Weber, Professor of English, Weill Cornell Medicine – Qatar
Diana Woodcock, Professor of English, Virginia Commonwealth University - Qatar

Please, the Steering Committee needs help to keep up with the group’s missions. If you could spare a few hours per month to volunteer and help with some responsibilities within the committee, we do have a few positions available.
The group is awe-inspiring and offers good opportunities to discover the Qatari peninsula and the region. But we need members to get involved in the planning and organization of our activities.

Thank you! Do get in touch with us and inquire about these openings.
