Qatar’s shopping malls will soon have ‘green centers’ to promote eco-friendly lifestyles among all segments of the society as per a new initiative – Friends of Nature, set to be launched soon.
Qatar Foundation initiative ‘‘A Flower Each Spring’, in collaboration with Ezdan Mall and Sports and Environment Committee of Olympics will be launching the campaign.
Dr Saif Al Hajari, the chairman of A Flower Each Spring initiative, stated that the new initiative would open green centres at private establishments like malls. The idea of green message should not be limited to schools and universities.
He added that malls are one the most popular venues of knowledge and learning as well, as reported by The Peninsula.
Al Hajari explained that saving the nature was not only the responsibility of government – private entities and non-governmental organizations should also play an active role.
Furthermore, he explained that the challenges have to be met and threats have to be solved to save the environment by 2030.
Al Hajari feels the best way to create a greater green future for the future generations is to preserve the present-day natural assets.
Thus, AL Hajari urged the corporate sector to be more dynamic in taking up social responsibility activities and also focus on sustainability and environment.
