Educating and inspiring the future generation on environmental preservation is crucial for sustainable development. Throughout the years, EEG’s Educational Programmes arm the young minds with knowledge on sustainability and foster their responsibility, observance and awareness. These qualities in turn empower the youth of the UAE, the backbone of the nation, to adapt long-lasting and persistent environmentally friendly practices to be carried into adulthood. EEG engages and unites enthusiastic and committed students from across the MENA region and provides them with numerous meaningful platforms to learn, connect and express their stance on the environment. EEG’s educational programmes raise proactive individuals, who hold an important role in making the changes necessary to sustain our planet.
