The Challenge today is to adopt more sustainable lifestyles. Each one of us has a responsibility to live peacefully without jeopardizing the natural resources. We need to act now by convening, converging and collaborating’.
As the founder of the group my desire is to unify strong bonds amongst youth who are the ‘Champions’, by participating in various awareness campaigns and initiatives that relate to education, health, environment and in all ways benefit community and its members by engaging in some fun filled events and learning activities. The Thrill of ‘Thinking and Connecting Global- Acting and Implementing Local’ aiming to raise awareness and at the same time stress on the need and acts of sustainable development. Sharing projects that will offer a hand to those in need for causes like health, children suffering from Diabetes, girls not getting education, various charity runs, walks and fund raisers to support community, youth exchange programs, conference participation and sharing to implement successful projects form local to global levels and integrating efforts.
Shored up by Tadweer, the Echo of the Environment and Dubai Municipality, SynergY members together celebrated the U.A.E. National Environment Day 2013 on Saturday making the best use of their day-off from schools, by planting trees and taking a tour of TADWEER facility; getting a better insight into waste management and pledging to contribute their best by advocating that everyone must adopt an Eco-lifestyle.
Under the patronage of HH Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, every year the country marks the National Environment Day on February 4 to highlight and galvanize public action and awareness about one of the key environmental issues in the UAE. The National Environment Day supports the spirit of individual and collective initiatives and responsibility among all segments of the society on environmental issues.
Dubai is a leading city that is committed to raise the environmental quality standards by generating initiatives and best practices across the region. Towards this direction, Tadweer is the first company in the region to pioneer in waste management solution applications for producing alternative fuel and green products and also to support environment leadership.
Touring the factory, the youngsters got an opportunity to see the process of solid waste sorting and recycling, understanding the sorting process and end products. This event is a testimony of Tadweer's mission that goes beyond the commercial purposes and aims at creating and establishing a quality environment through educational partnerships and leadership, increasing waste reduction, recycling and resource conservation. Such innovative participation will certainly put UAE on the path of zero waste generation, and will turn solid waste from a burden to a resource and also contribute in reducing carbon foot print.
