Organised by the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change’s Public Relations Department in co-operation with the National Programme for Rationalisation and Energy Efficiency (Tarsheed), and Barzan Girls Forum, the camp will run until August 7.
The camp aims at enhancing environmental awareness to achieve the sustainable development targets through interactive workshops on waste recycling. There are lectures and workshops for age categories from nine to 18. Some workshops focus on making creative products from the household and electronic waste.
The lectures will introduce the participants to topics such as the harmful consequences of plastic usage and how to understand the various grades and uses of plastic and purifying the air inside the houses and homes through indoor plants while teaching them about the plants that produce poisonous gases to avoid them.
Tarsheed features various activities at the Kahramaa Awareness Park, including a 3D cinema and various interactive and instructive games.
