Qatar Green Building Council (QGBC) has announced this year's 5th edition of Qatar Sustainability Week.

The Public Parks Department is participating in the said event, as a contribution from the Ministry of Municipality and Environment, in its effort to develop and use new modern agricultural technologies that are compatible with Qatar's climate.

Participation is to present a presentation today, on the mechanism of using waterboxx technology from the Dutch company, Groasis, which has proven successful in rationalising the use of water in agriculture of all kinds, as it has been relied upon in afforestation of many desert lands in various countries. It aims at establishing a culture of sustainability and spreading it among all groups of society.

A number of successful experiments of cultivation using waterboxx technology have been carried out in a number of areas in Qatar under the supervision of the Public Parks Department. 

The resounding success of Qatar Sustainability Week in the last 4 years attracted more than 100,000 members of the public attending events held across Qatar. The week-long National Campaign is taking place from October 31 - November 7, 2020.

Right here, people can take action and come together to create a movement for change. Individuals and corporates can match power and passion with action to make a difference. Pledge your action for a better tomorrow.
