Doha Environmental Actions Project (Deap Qatar) has launched its free environmental educational packs for primary (elementary) and secondary schools, which forms part of its efforts to raise environmental awareness in Qatar and the rest of the Gulf region.
“If you are a school teacher or someone leading an eco-club, these materials are for you. They contain several mini lessons that can be included in your school’s curriculum or serve as an extension for extracurricular activities such as beach and desert cleanups or eco-club educational activities,” Deap Qatar posted on its social media pages.

Deap Qatar noted that the publications, in English and Arabic, are specially tailored for Qatar’s natural landscape and ecosystem. The group thanked the UK’s Centre for Environment Fisheries and Aquaculture Science for helping them develop the materials.
Deap Qatar, in collaboration with the authorities and organisations concerned, has been holding beach clean-up drives year-round across the country, bringing together volunteers from various sectors to #keepqatarclean.
Despite the many challenges such as the Covid-19 restrictions, Deap Qatar has organised a total of 100 clean-up drives in a year. Thousands of volunteers from different companies, schools, embassies, government, and non-government entities have taken part in these initiatives.
Just recently, the group collaborated with members of the Philippine Professional Organisation Qatar and the Philippine Institute of Environmental Planners Qatar Chapter for a cleanup drive, which gathered 70 volunteers who collected 200kg of trash.
