In celebration of World Environment Day, Umm Al Emarat Park has announced the launch of the #GreenWall initiative to continue with the vision of the UAE leadership of making the world more environmentally friendly and sustainable.
Inviting the community to contribute and protect the environment, participants are invited to post their environmental efforts on their Instagram feed and Facebook using the hashtag #GreenWall. This will build a public awareness responsibility towards the planet and its well-being.
Rasha Kablawi, Head of Umm Al Emarat Park’s Corporate Affairs and Communications Department, commented, “As Abu Dhabi’s favourite green destination, we are so excited to welcome the community to join our #GreenWall initiative. Our responsibility to support sustainability and the environment is something we take seriously. In line with the UAE’s vision to create a sustainable future, we encourage all the community members to make conscious efforts to be more aware of the impact of their actions on the environment.
Welcoming more than 700,000 community members annually, Umm Al Emarat Park is Abu Dhabi’s favourite green destination and has been awarded the Green Flag Award for its sustainability efforts, community involvement and cleanliness.
The Park invests in spreading greenery, conserving the environment, and preserving the gift of nature. It also has extensive flora and fauna with broadleaf, palm trees, indigenous and naturalized species, and state-of-the-art facilities, recreational areas, restaurants, cafés, and grab-and-go eateries.
Along with producing its compost from recycled green waste, Umm Al Emarat Park uses an environment-friendly irrigation system that reclaims grey water. In this way, the Park saves up to 40% of overall landscape irrigation water consumption. The Park is a smoke-free zone to further their conservation efforts to prevent dangerous toxins from being released into the environment.
