The Green Programme for Schools (GPS) is the environmental initiative of Msheireb Properties in association with Qatar Today magazine. This unique programme aims to Reach, Inspire and Reward students and schools in Qatar by meaningfully engaging and inculcating in them the importance of building a green culture.
As a sub-programme under the Green Programme for Schools (GPS), ORYX GTL is sponsoring an energy awareness campaign across schools to enhance environmental awareness and culture in Qatar. By signing up as Gold Sponsor for the programme, ORYX GTL aims to promote its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme to enhance environmental awareness and culture in Qatar in line with the National Vision 2030 .
ORYX GTL truly believes in the power of youth, and that long-term and sustainable growth can be brought about through education of students. With the support of ORYX GTL a path-breaking programme such as GPS will grow from strength to strength.
Through this campaign, GPS as well as ORYX GTL aim to educate the schools and students on the concept of energy. For this, energy awareness information boards will be placed in all the participating schools. There will be also a quiz competition held where students have to answer three simple questions based on energy awareness as well as write a catchy slogan on energy. The student with the best energy slogan will be awarded. "We thank ORYX GTL for showing the foresight and commitment in supporting this unique school programme. Who better than an energy company to educate the youth of today the importance of respecting our natural resources and using them judiciously," said Ravi Raman, Vice President, Oryx Advertising.
The ongoing activation process of the nominated schools involves each school being branded with stickers and pledge boards. GPS is supported by the Supreme Education Council and its partners include: Qatar Green Building Council as consulting partner, ILQ and CAMPUS as media partners, and Mission 20 as activation partner.
