The Ministry of Municipality, represented by the Department of Waste Recycling and Treatment, in co-operation with KidZania Doha, participated in the launch of a centre dedicated for children to recycle paper, inside KidZania Doha. The aim is to educate children on the importance of recycling, which contributes to reducing waste in order to preserve the environment. Hassan Nasr al-Nasr, assistant director of the Department of Waste Recycling and Treatment at the Ministry of Municipality, and Victor Jabbour, general manager of Qatar Entertainment Company (Tasali) signed the agreement and cut a ribbon to mark the opening.
Al-Nasr said: “We believe that our partnership with KidZania provides a unique educational platform, not only educating children about our work, but also an important opportunity to support Qatar’s national vision by increasing interest in learning."
Jabbour said: “KidZania is the world’s leading brand in the fields of education and entertainment, and we believe that the best way to educate children is through role-play and games. Through KidZania’s unique business model we will be able to interact with children and provide them with cognitive experiences that will positively and significantly affect their future.”
Within the centre, the children will assume the role of recycling specialists, and undergo training on the recycling mechanism and how to convert waste paper into new products. This will enhance their motor skills by assembling paper bags that can be 100% recycled and reusable.
