Environmental Ambassadors of Qatar – Class of 2020

A joint initiative of Arab Youth Climate Movement Qatar & Qatar Green Building Council (member of Qatar Foundation)

WHAT IS ‘ENVIRONMENTAL AMBASSADORS OF QATAR’?
Today every commercial product is recognized by a brand ambassador, either it is a luxury watch or toothbrush. Why not for the environment, that provides sustenance and spiritual comfort. We want our society to be in awe and wonder about our natural ecosystems by highlighting what they do quietly and remarkably profound.

Environmental Ambassadors of Qatar is an active, educational leadership program, a first of its kind in the state of Qatar focused on timeless, universal ecological principles applicable to all-natural ecosystems for those interested in personal, collaborative, and community engaged learning. The program offers opportunities for critical and creative engagement, and experiences for youth to practice their leadership skills and sustainability competencies through learning, planning, and idea implementation.

The topics will range from climate change, terrestrial ecosystem, oceans, plastic pollution, seed conservation to renewable energy, waste management, voluntary simplicity, etc. After a rigorous selection process, the individuals will be trained to dedicate part of their time in raising awareness of the subject and highlight the current status and what needs to be done through a year-long campaign in social media, public events, schools, Universities and other relevant platforms.
