Qatar Cool yesterday joined with other organisations and local youngsters to celebrate Earth Day 2012 by raising environmental awareness and urging everyone to ‘Mobilise the Earth’.
The district cooling company partnered with the Earth Day Network and Qatar Foundation to participate in the Earth Day Environmental Fair at the Student Centre at Education City.
“According to the Earth Day Network, the 2012 campaign is designed to provide people with the opportunity to unite their voices in a call for a sustainable future and direct them toward quantifiable outcomes, using vehicles such as petitions, the ‘Billion Acts of Green’ campaign, and events,” explained a spokesperson. CEO of Qatar Cool, Fayad al-Khatib said that he was thrilled to see the strength of attendance and interest in the subject on the day.
“Working with the youth is an important pillar in our corporate social responsibility strategy,” he said, adding “giving back to the community through education and awareness towards a sustainable future is an implicit part of what we do, and that is why we have supported this important event for the third year running”. “This fair provides a venue for organisations, whether government or private, to interact with school and university students to encourage dialogue and support sustainability education in the classroom,” he added. Students from a variety of schools and universities from across the country attended the event which was also open to the public.
