Qatar Green Building Council (QGBC), a member of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development, will launch the first edition of Qatar Sustainability Week 2016 from November 13 to 17.
The objective is to engage the community in a wide range of sustainability-oriented activities.
The week-long QGBC initiative will serve as a unique platform to promote the nation’s sustainability vision as well as community engagement with relevant stakeholders. The event will showcase the efforts of Qatar’s public and private sectors, providing the support, coordination and expert advice to unite under an overarching umbrella to achieve the nation’s sustainable development goals.
Coinciding with the 22nd Conference of the Parties (COP 22) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, the event will highlight Qatar’s potential, commitment, and contributions to mitigate global climate change.
Meshal al-Shamari, QGBC director, said: “Qatar has undertaken numerous initiatives to achieve the nation’s environmental protection and sustainable development goals. Qatar Sustainability Week will provide an opportunity for various stakeholders to showcase their innovative and practical solutions to the environmental challenges facing Qatar and the wider region.”
“The effectiveness of the event will be determined by the active participation of the various stakeholders from both the private and public sectors. We look forward to welcoming widespread participation,” added al-Shamari.
