Qatar Foundation (QF) has launched the Education City App - a new way of exploring and experiencing everything on offer at the Education City.
The free-to-download app showcases how Education City is a hub of community life providing something for everyone to enjoy and to discover more about the events, activities, and opportunities available within QF.
The Education City App is now available to download for free from Google Play and the Apple Store.
It joins a portfolio of new digital platforms created to promote Education City to a wider audience virtually, alongside a dedicated website containing digital recordings that give visitors an immersive insight into QF’s range of events and activities; and the Education City Marketplace, which is supporting businesses in Qatar by providing them with a shop window to sell their unique and creative handcrafted goods.
“Education City is a diverse and vibrant environment that is open, inclusive, and welcomes everyone,” said Machaille Hassan al-Naimi, president, Community Development, QF.
“Our newly-launched Education City App brings all that we offer together in a single location, enabling people to find out about everything that is taking place within Education City and how it aligns with their interests – whether they are looking to attend a lecture series, join a sports and wellness class, or attend one of our Art Trail tours.
“Everything that QF offers at Education City is designed to leave a lasting, positive, and empowering mark on people’s lives, encouraging them to live healthy and sustainable lives. Through the Education City App and its accompanying digital platforms, we look forward to welcoming even more people to Education City, and inviting them to discover how our home is a destination for everyone.”
The Education City App – which is fully accessible and Mada-accredited, and was built by a QF alumni-owned organisation, AppLab – allows users to easily navigate their way through the array of activities they can experience at QF, from sport and community classes to arts and cultural events and public talks, and provides a guide to the many venues and facilities available for them to use at Education City.
Through the English-and-Arabic app, people can register for activities, book facilities, and make payments electronically in a single visit; while it also includes user-friendly features that help people find what they are looking for within Education City, or just to browse and discover more about the range of opportunities for enjoyment that can be found within QF before they happen.
Meanwhile, the app also benefits organisers of events and classes that are held within Education City, and venue owners, by providing them with a digital space on which they can promote their community-focused activities and facilities. All of its features complement those also available at Education City’s new website,
The Education City Marketplace provides an opportunity for shoppers to snap up handmade products and gifts with a Qatar flavour, from homeware and decorative items to crafts, fashion, cosmetics, toys and specialty food.
