A day with purpose for UAE Students who planted trees at Landfill led by SynergY Simran Vedvyas
Celebrating the Earth Week 2013 in UAE, SynergY Youth Group after months of thoughtful planning and preparation successfully organized a Plant-for–the-Planet Academy at The Address Dubai Marina Hotel.
Plant-for-the-Planet is a global children’s initiative through which children generate awareness among other children by enlightening them about climate crisis and environmental protection urging them to take action by planting more and more trees. It is also an endeavor of the children to sensitize the adults while they talk; by saying: “Stop talking. Start planting.”
Youth and Children from more than 15 schools and institutions from Dubai, Sharjah and Abu Dhabi conducted the day-long event spread over 3 venues which included a Landfill Location at Dubai Municipality in Jebel Ali and Super Galvanizing Jebel Ali where they planted a total of 120 trees. The Academy event venue The Address Dubai Marina gave the young generation a celebrated chance to synergize their potential by indulging in planting trees, learning about climate change, team-building, aspiring and planning to move forward in days to come for contributing in shaping the Green Economy initiative of Dubai, UAE.
The Full day Academy was inspiring and interesting and the event became livelier during the Grand Finale as SynergY members and participants’ along with the supporters and invited guests went drumming freely and believing that the world needs – ‘Unity though Rhythm’, supported by Dubai Drums (www.dubaidrums.com). The event concluded after scores of Climate Justice Ambassadors were awarded their Certificates endorsed by UNEP, Plant-for-the-Planet and SynergY.
I Simran Vedvyas, as the Founder and Chairperson of SynergY am very happy fulfill a dream ‘to conduct a successful Plant- for-the-Planet Academy of this big magnitude’.
