The First Lady was then briefed on Qatar Foundation’s numerous sustainability projects and climate action solutions. 

"Qatar Foundation today is a prime example of modernity and excellence in the region and is leading the Middle East towards a better and brighter future," explained Dr Pignato. "I salute Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, Chairperson of Qatar Foundation, for all of the revolutionary projects underway on campus, as they provide a source of pride for everyone around the world." 

After the presentation, the First Lady and her delegation were shown an impressive 3D scale model of the current buildings and future construction projects at Qatar Foundation. As the visit came to a close, Dr Pignato signed the Qatar Foundation visitor’s book and was presented with a collection of Qur’anic manuscripts.
