QND 2021 slogan a true reflection of the State’s high regard for environment
To be held under the slogan: “Ancestral Meadows: A Matter of Trust,” this year’s Qatar National Day celebrations will reflect the state’s high regard for the environment through a number of initiatives, events and activities.
This was the topic addressed by HE Mr Salah al-Ali, Minister for Culture and Sports, who spoke about the respect for the environment enjoyed by the Qatari society, who value desert life with its unique plants and wildlife.
HE also stressed the importance of establishing more conservatories to preserve near-extinct plants in non-urban areas threatened by drought and urban sprawl.
Participants in the event also made note of the different initiatives being taken by several Qatari citizens to protect certain endangered wild plants, such as Rhanterium epapposum Oliv. (Arhaj).
HE also expressed the ministry’s receptiveness and willingness to support citizen-led initiatives to preserve the environment and move towards achieving ecological sustainability so that the generations to come can enjoy a healthy life in their country.
