Doha College becomes first school in Qatar to hoist FEE's Eco-Schools Green Flag
The Eco-Schools program, coordinated by Denmark-based FEE, is delivered to 49,000 schools across 64 countries by NGOs in those countries.
"The Eco-Schools program's greatest achievement is arguably that it produces generation after generation of sustainably minded, environmentally conscious people by focusing on education throughout schools," Bríd Conneely, international director of Eco-Schools at the FEE head office, said. "These individual students will carry the behavioral patterns they learn under the auspices of Eco-Schools with them throughout life, in turn teaching the next generation environmental habits to make a difference."
The Doha College Eco Committee of 30 students participated in the program by designing and implementing a seven-step change process for environmental sustainability.
"I'd like to congratulate Doha College and all its students and teachers on their great achievement, and wish them continued success with their work in sustainability,” Daniel Schaffer, CEO of FEE, said. “We are delighted to have our first official international school with a Green Flag awarded from our head office."
Committee members involved in the inspection included Elena Straface, Alexandra Nightingale, Petra Darmawan, Chelsea Mabulay, Leena Mohamed, Tatiana Fairley, Tanisha Chopra, Shadi Abboud, Caitlyn Owen, Alicia Field, Kane Bastic and Lenny Heidl.
