The Supervisory Committee of Beautification of Roads and Public Places in Qatar planted trees in the park near the Shura Council building on Monday as part of the ‘Qatar Beautification and Our Kids Planting Trees’ campaign launched by the committee last year, aiming at planting one million trees in cooperation with Ministry of Municipality and Environment (MME).
Speaker of the Shura Council HE Ahmed bin Abdullah bin Zaid Al Mahmoud, Minister of Finance HE Ali Sharif Al Emadi and President of Public Works Authority (Ashghal) Dr Eng Saad bin Ahmed Al Muhannadi attended the event along with distinguished members of Council.
HE Abdullah bin Fahd Ghorab, a member of the Shura Council, stated that he was impressed by the initiative for beautification of roads and public places, which contributes to spreading awareness about the importance of planting trees and increasing green areas. He also praised the supervisory committee’s efforts to involve many institutions and entities of the state in the initiative, besides involving
children.
HE Dr Aisha Yousef Al Mannai, a member of Shura Council, said: “Planting trees today is a symbol of life, growth and continuous development in Qatar, thanks to God and thanks to the blessed efforts of His Highness the Amir, the government and ministers.
We are happy to plant trees today, and we hope that our children and next generation will harvest the fruits of what we have planted.” Eng Mohammad Arqoub Al Khaldi, chairman of Supervisory Committee of Beautification of Roads and Public Places in Qatar, commented: “Qatar Beautification and Our Kids Planting Trees campaign aims at spreading awareness about the importance of planting trees, emphasising the social responsibility of everyone in the protection and preservation of environment.
