Aligned with the ‘Year of Sustainability,’ the platform aims to break down sustainability concepts into tangible daily actions, reinforcing the commitment to environmental responsibility.

Empowering Individuals: Action

Naha offers personalized tools such as ‘my naha’ newsfeed and calendar, empowering individuals to adopt environmental lifestyle changes through increased awareness, event participation, and community engagement.

Variety of Initiatives

The e-platform encompasses over eight environmental programs and initiatives, including the Sustainable Schools Initiative (SSI), Sustainable Campus Initiative (SCI), and ‘Sahim’ Citizen Science Programme, targeting youth, school students, and the community.

Collective Capabilities: Action

Dr. Al Dhaheri emphasized that the alliance with du amplifies their capabilities to leverage digital technologies for heightened environmental awareness, lifestyle changes, and actionable measures.

Toward a Sustainable Future
