Featuring budding writers, the “Children’s Book Designer” initiative started Saturday at the International Zone of Expo 2023 Doha.
With the book exhibition by young Qatari writers in the vicinity of Qatar’s pavilion, the initiative is aimed at promoting reading, introducing the writers and instilling the basic values of Arab and Islamic culture and Qatari identity by supporting these writers.
The book exhibition is open to the public from 4pm-8pm until December 2.
Expo 2023 Doha director of programmes management Lolwa al-Mohannadi, in her opening remarks, said that various activities are held as part of the “Children’s Book Designer” initiative at Expo 2023 Doha.
“Expo 2023 Doha is the most prominent event in the country. Therefore we were keen from the beginning to direct our efforts towards programmes that support social responsibility and the children’s involvement with us is a major priority in our various programmes,” she said.
Al-Mohannadi noted that children’s activities in the expo include workshops, educational presentations and agricultural and recycling activities in addition to entertainment programmes and performances that highlight the environment and sustainability, and contribute to motivating students and activating their role in creating a greener and more sustainable future.
“Children are our sustainable investment always and forever,” she pointed out.
The official said that the “Children’s Book Designer” initiative is an ideal opportunity to embody the concepts of environment and gardening.
“We see these two concepts from the perspective of children in innovative and distinctive stories and drawings,” al-Mohannadi added.
