The Ministry of Municipality and Environment, represented by Al Wakra Municipality, launched the Al Wakra Walkway, an environmentally sustainable walkway, as part of the activities of Qatar Sustainability Week 2020 and coinciding with the accession of Al Wakra to the membership of the UNESCO Global Network of Learning Cities (GNLC).

Al Wakra Municipality's Omar Al Jaber explained that the inauguration is in line with environmental sustainability, as environmentally friendly materials were used in lighting and recycled materials to create the walkway, seats, etc., in addition to the use of plants.

He indicated that the walkway is 350 meters long and environmentally friendly materials were used in all stages of its construction, in line with the idea proposed for Qatar Sustainability Week.

Al Wakra Municipality, represented by the Public Parks Department, was keen to use solar lighting in many of its facilities such as Al Wakra Family Beach and Al Wakra Public Beach.
