I would highly recommend Arwa to anyone in need of some ‘green journalism’ in particular from Islamic perspective.” ~ Rianne ten Veen, Founder of Green Creation

  1. Hello this is a message for Arwa Aburawa.
    This is Junaid from the BBC World Service. I would like to speak to you about this story we are doing on Muslims in UK. Can you please call me as soon as possible on 0207 557 2141 please?
    Junaid Ahmed, Newshour, BBC World Service

  2. Hi Arwa,

    James here, reviews editor from Green Prophet. I was based in Jerusalem for 5 years, now back in Bristol, arguably the greenest City in the UK, though some may argue with that! I’m completing a documentary about time spent in the Negev living & working amongst Bedouin tribes, and noticed your surname – any Bedouin ancestry?
    Anyway, really enjoy your posts on GP, and this site looks great too. Hope we meet up sometime….
    all best,
