Qatar Sustainability Week
Qatar Sustainability Week is a national campaign that aims to engage the community in a wide range of sustainability related activities to achieve the global sustainability goals outlined in the Qatar National Vision 2030. These activities can be large scale projects or simple individual tasks that will contribute to the goal.
DBS offers a wide range of extracurricular activities for students to attend during after school hours. Ecoschools ECA is one of them – where students can help contribute to the committees efforts, learn and make an impact. Our ECAs for this term resume on the 29th of January, and the ECA will take place every Sunday from 1:45-2:30 pm. This ensures all secondary students have a chance to get involved.
