The Arab Recycling Initiative, The Big Tree Society and Tarsheed Qatar

Abstract: 
The website covers UNESCO’s initiatives on Green schools and recycling. The Arab Recycling Initiative which is Doha’s work waste resource management is a web based platform aiming to improve the waste management capacity of the Middle-East by improving the availability and visibility of information related to waste management in the region, as well making networks of stakeholders easily accessible. Furthermore, a platform was suggested where schools can use whichever programme they feel most comfortable with, while still receiving recognition for their efforts towards improving the urban ecosystems, be it through recycling, energy awareness, even water efficient permaculture landscaping. The programme was designed to encourage the active participation of the private sector, so they can help either with technical advice, in kind contributions or financial support, either to the programme or to the schools.
