As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility activities, Stenden University Qatar (SUQ) organized a coastal cleanup of the Golden Beach in Mesaieed. This initiative aimed to spread awareness among Qatar’s residents and visitors about environmental protection and preservation of the natural resources. It also sought to promote beautification of the coastal areas and reduction of the amount of litter on Qatar’s beaches. The event was organized in coordination with the Al Wakra Municipality, which provided additional support in the organisation of the cleanup.
The volunteers for this event included Stenden University Qatar students, staff members, and alumni. They spent the day removing trash from the Golden Beach and perceived this activity as a great opportunity to socialize, contribute to the conservation of the environment, and have fun.
“At Stenden University Qatar we are committed to spreading awareness about environmental protection, and further enhancing the attractiveness of the tourist resources in the State of Qatar. We are planning to organise similar events at least twice a year and hope to involve more people in our future initiatives” said Dr. Ivan Ninov, Executive Dean of Stenden University Qatar.
