‘Protecting The Planet Is Our Collective Responsibility’
By Fatima Al Khulaifi

For over half a century, people around the globe have come together every 22nd of April to celebrate World Earth Day. Yet, 52 years later, the world still aspires to advance environmental conservation efforts and initiatives to combat climate change, as well as to raise awareness of the threats facing our planet.
At the Qur’anic Botanic Garden (QBG) we are proud of our years-long contribution to reducing carbon emissions by producing seedlings that consume little water, yet grow sustainably in infertile soil, while also protecting rare plant species in their natural habitat as part of our comprehensive efforts to limit desertification and to restore Qatar’s ecological balance.
