Environmental Treasure Hunt Youth Workshop on Adopting a Sustainable Lifestyle
 
EVENTSCOM and the Environmental Citizenship Program (ECP) Bahrain Women Association- for Human Development (BWA) are organising another dynamic workshop under the umbrella of the sixth annual Environmental Treasure Hunt, entitled “Youth… Towards a Sustainable Lifestyle.”

The workshop aims to define the concept of sustainability in terms of consumption patterns and development. The workshop will also empower youth in their duty to act as responsible citizens who respect the earth and preserve its resources for the benefit of present and future generations.

“Youth… Towards a Sustainable Lifestyle” will take place on Tuesday 18 August, 2009 from 9:00 am to 11:00 am at the Northern governorate premises, and will be facilitated by the Environmental Citizenship Program (ECP) Bahrain Women Association- for Human Development (BWA) in line with the Treasure Hunt theme “CHANGING BEHAVIOUR TOWARDS THE ENVIRONMENT”. 

The workshop is targeting youth between 15-19 years of age, and is one of a variety of supporting activities which are open to the public, leading up to the highly anticipated Treasure Hunt event, which is taking place on 6 November 2009 under the patronage of H.H. Shaikh Abdullah bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Head of the Public Commission for the Protection of Marine Resources, Environment and Wildlife (the Commission).

The Treasure Hunt has been successfully raising environmental awareness by targeting a broad demographic through a range of unique and informative activities including: workshops, film screenings, fashion show, garage sale, photo and video competitions, and much more. 

The sixth annual Environmental Treasure Hunt is being organised by EVENTSCOM with the support of the Commission, the Environmental Citizenship Program (ECP) Bahrain Women Association- for Human Development (BWA), and the United Nations Environment Program (UNDP).

The first Treasure Hunt in 2003 promoted road safety and driving ethics. Teams will simultaneously be competing to solve clues, leading them along a pre-determined map route to a wide spectrum of locations, whilst being monitored by Traffic Police to ensure they adhere to the laws of the road and speed limits.

Admission to the “Youth… Towards a Sustainable Lifestyle” workshop is free of charge but participants must register in advance by contacting a representative at EVENTSCOM on +973-17-226775.
