Qatar Sustainability Week, an initiative by Qatar Green Building Council aims to further engage the community in a wide range of sustainability-oriented activities. The week will serve as a unique platform to promote the nation’s sustainability vision as well as community engagement with relevant stakeholders. The event will showcase the efforts of Qatar’s public and private sectors, providing the support, coordination and expert advice needed to unite under an overarching umbrella to achieve the nation’s sustainable development goals.
The State of Qatar has undertaken numerous initiatives to achieve the nation’s environmental protection and sustainable development goals. Qatar Sustainability Week will provide an opportunity for various stakeholders to showcase their innovative and practical solutions to the environmental challenges facing Qatar and the wider region. It will also assist in achieving the global sustainability goals outlined in the Qatar National Vision 2030. The effectiveness of the event will be determined by the active participation of the various stakeholders from both the private and public sectors. We look forward to welcoming widespread participation.
Additionally, to initiate community engagement in Qatar Sustainability Week 2016, QGBC launched the ‘Qatar Sustainability Week Logo Design Competition’.
More than 55 ideas were received over the summer and the winning logo by Mr. Bachir Mohammed is now featured as the official Logo of the Week. The Logo from the runner up Mr. Peter Grapsopoulos will be used in a new QGBC initiative that will be announced soon.
