Royal Commission in Jubail represented by the Environmental Protection and Control Department organizes the Arab Environment Day and the accompanying Exhibition, during the period from 11-17 Oct, at the knowledge and Innovation Center in Jubail City under the slogan (Our Environment is Our Health). The Royal Commission aims to raise environmental awareness among all sectors of society and to correct some environment misconceptions focusing on the youth and the families as they are the core component of our society. The protection of the environment is the responsibility of all.
The objective of Arab Environment Day is to educate visitors to the importance of environment preservation and about the International Standards that companies are committed to adhere to. Moreover, it aims to increase environmental awareness and promote the proper environmental behavior among the society members through fun and educational awareness messages in addition to introducing the latest recycling mechanisms and methods to maintain the healthy environment at home and community.
The event overlaps with the opening of the interactive environmental Exhibition organized by the Royal Commission in collaboration with SADARA Chemical Company. The Exhibition embraces interactive corners and devices that provide environmental advice and guidance to demonstrate the environmental efforts and programs for environment preservation in Jubail Industrial City.
The event also contains many other corners such as the environmental lab, exhibition of industrial companies, environmental city corner, the three-dimensional environmental cinema, the entertainment awareness corner in addition to the environmental heroes theater.
It’s worth mentioning that the Arab world celebrates this occasion on the 14th of October each year in order to commemorate the occasion of the first ministerial conference of Arab Environment Ministers in Tunisia in 1986, where the focus was placed on the most important common environmental issues and means of cooperation to join efforts to preserve the environment, in the Arab World.
