Qatar Green Building Council ( QGBC) has highlighted that the Education City of Qatar Foundation (QF) is setting an excellent example of how sustainability and green building practice can transform space for natural and human well-being.
Qatar Foundation's (QF's) Pre-University Education (PUE) has opened registration for its Education City Summer Camp 2018.
HE Sheikha Hind bint Hamad al-Thani, Vice Chairperson and CEO of Qatar Foundation (QF), on Saturday took part in a panel discussion hosted by QF and Inside Higher Ed at the St. Regis in Washington, DC.
HE Sheikha Hind said: “Each member of the graduating Class of 2018 carries with them the skills and knowledge needed to thrive in a global setting and to benefit Qatar and wider international community."
The yearly grant is designed to encourage, recognise and reward educators across Education City who wish to implement creative and innovative pedagogical approaches in the classroom.
The programme kicked off with a 2km Walkathon around Education City in which Sheikh Moza participated along with a number of dignitaries.
The day-long event, held at QF’s Ceremonial Court and Green Spine area in Education City, provided the public with an insight into local traditions and values.
The Torba Farmers Market at the Education City is a melting pot for unique products by local entrepreneurs and small businesses, and a great way to spend the weekends with family and friends.
Large groups representing schools and various organisations cheered loudly in support of the walkathon. Children lined up to have their faces painted.
