The discovery programme has been put together by Emirates Nature and the Environment Agency Abu Dhabi. 

The ‘Connect With Nature’ programme offers virtual experiences that are updated each week - and currently include discussion groups on connecting with nature, a workshop on upcycling plastic and a talk on what is zero-waste.

Dr. Shaikha Salem Al Dhaheri, Secretary General at the Environment Agency-Abu Dhabi said she hopes the programme inspires young people to become leaders in shaping an optimistic future for our planet.

"These virtual experiences will provide food for thought, insight and we hope some light relief over the coming weeks and encourage residents to remain connected to important discussions on environmental sustainability whether they are distance learning or working from home,” she said.
