Doha Festival City (DFC), ‘Qatar’s one and only choice for shopping, dining and entertainment’, hosted a recycling initiative organised by Al Daayen Municipality to mark the World Environment Day. The two-day event saw a recycling drive and engaging activities for children.
The World Environment Day is the largest global platform for environmental public outreach and is celebrated by millions of people across the world. Led by the UN Environment Programme (UNEP), it is held annually on June 5 since 1973. This year it was hosted in Sweden under the slogan #OnlyOneEarth with a focus on living sustainably in harmony with nature.
Through the joint Al Daayen Municipality and DFC recycling initiative, mall visitors were able to claim reusable bottles from the event’s partners, Daiso and Ikea, upon recycling 10 single-use plastic bottles. The event also hosted a special activation for children where the younger participants enjoyed a colouring activity.
Robert Hall, DFC general manager, said: “As a socially responsible mall and as part of our #FestivalCares programme, Doha Festival City strives to be at the forefront to celebrate international occasions that serve toward spreading awareness on the environmental impact of our daily choices, and the impact of environmental damage on our collective health and wellbeing. Doha Festival City is committed to providing a platform for community initiatives such as this recycling initiative in partnership with the Al Daayen Municipality. Together we are demonstrating that everyone can play a positive role in protecting the environment and promoting the sustainable culture in Qatar.”
Rashid Mishlesh Al Khayarin, director of Al Daayen Municipality, said: “We are very happy to partner with Doha Festival City, one of our long-standing partners to spread awareness on the importance of recycling in our community. Our joint efforts aim at empowering people to make responsible choices and to understand that their efforts - no matter how small - can contribute to a healthier environment for them and the future generations. The realization of the environmental pillar of Qatar National Vision 2030 is only possible when we all work together.”
DFCs #FestivalCares initiatives programme includes a robust array of internal and external initiatives and events catered toward providing support and assistance to the ‘mall’s visitors and helping enrich their experience, as well as supporting the local community in Qatar as part of Doha Festival City’s efforts to give back to the people in Qatar as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility programme.
