EVENTSCOM and the Environmental Citizenship Program of Bahrain Women Association- for Human Development (BWA) are organising a dynamic “Youth X-Change” workshop under the umbrella of the sixth annual Environmental Treasure Hunt, which is taking place 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 Arabic workshop will take place on Wednesday 12 August, 2009 from 9:00am to 11:00am at the Muharraq Club in coordination with the Muharraq Governorate, and will be facilitated by the Environmental Citizenship Program of Bahrain Women Association- for Human Development who is certified by the UNEP to train this workshop to others, this is in line with the Treasure Hunt theme “CHANGING BEHAVIOUR TOWARDS THE ENVIRONMENT”.
.
The “Youth X-Change” workshop is targeting approximately 50 Muharraq Club youth between the ages of 15- 20 years in order to motivate them to change their consumption patterns and encourage them to adopt a more sustainable lifestyle. The workshop will hold youth accountable for implementing change in their every-day lives including: travel and transportation, consumption, shopping, waste management—and its more environmentally-friendly alternatives.

The workshop 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.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 of 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.
