Qatar Green Building Council (QGBC), a member of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development, has announced dates for the third edition of Qatar Sustainability Week (QSW). The week-long event, to be held under the patronage of His Excellency the Prime Minister and Minister of Interior, Sheikh Abdullah Bin Nasser Bin Khalifa Al Thani, will take place from October 27 to November 3, 2018.

QSW is designed to actively engage Qatar’s public and private sector organizations in a wide range of sustainability-oriented activities. The event also aims to promote engagement and foster a culture of environmental sustainability among residents and the wider community. The QGBC annual event is in line with achieving the global sustainability goals outlined in Qatar National Vision 2030.

QSW 2018 will kick-off with one of the week's most prominent events, the third edition of the Qatar Green Building Conference. Taking place from October 28-29, it will be held under the patronage of Her Excellency Sheikha Hind bint Hamad Al Thani, Vice Chairperson and CEO of Qatar Foundation.

The two-day event, which will also include the Qatar Sustainability Awards ceremony on October 28, will bring together industry leaders and sustainability experts to address and showcase their innovative solutions to Qatar’s and the region’s most pressing environmental challenges.

Engineer Meshal Al Shamari, Director, QGBC, said: “We’re delighted to announce QSW for the third consecutive year. The main aim of QSW is to contribute towards our nation’s environmental protection and sustainable development goals. We’re looking forward to involving the entire community in this event, and strongly encourage the active participation from all community members as well as those from public and private sector organizations. Following the great success of QSW 2017, where more than 20,000 participants and 100 partners took part in more than 200 events, we look forward to welcoming back our existing partners, bringing new entities on board, and incorporating a variety of different events in 2018.”
