Qatar National Library has announced that it will present a travel adventure seminar on June 20 with Qatari travel writer and television presenter Ali bin Towar al-Kuwari. Al-Kuwari’s role as host and presenter of the popular Arabic travel series, 'Khota Al Rahala', has seen the young Qatari travel to far-flung places around the world such as the Amazon rainforest in Brazil, the Shaolin School of Kung Fu in China, and on other exciting adventures. Al-Kuwari will share his explorations and experiences at the seminar in his usual lively and frank style of storytelling.
In a statement yesterday, the library said it regularly hosts such events to recognise Qatar’s outstanding youth and individuals, who are seen to have a role in educating others about the world and the diverse experiences of people from different communities and cultures across the globe.
Al-Kuwari is not only a seasoned traveller, but is also known in the community for his commitment to social responsibility in his role as brand ambassador for Vodafone Qatar and as an avid cyclist, the statement notes.
Haya al-Sheeb, Information Services librarian at the library, said: “The event is part of the library’s commitment to providing an engaging learning environment where our community can be inspired to reach their full potential.”
“We are proud to offer a platform here at the library for inspiring individuals such as Mr al-Kuwari, who are having an impact both socially and professionally, to share his experience as a world traveller. In this way, we hope that our youth will benefit from interactions with role models who can have a positive influence on their formative learning and personal development,” added al-Sheeb.
The seminar is open to the public and will take place at the library on June 20 from 4.30pm to 5.30pm.
