I am an environmentalist, educator, and social change advocate. I believe that environmental issues like climate change is one of the greatest threats facing humanity and Qatar is no different. The challenges we will face in 2019 and in the coming years are urgent and massive. However, creating a sustainable and just world takes a lot of time, effort and tenacity. 

In this effort, for the past 4 years, I have been actively working on climate policy, advocacy, education and the empowerment of diverse actors such as young men and women for climate action in Qatar and the Middle East region at large. 

In recent years, I'm also working with WWF as the official organizer for Earth Hour in Qatar which helped to spread the word on Earth Hour and increase awareness amongst citizen and resident on environmental and climate change issues in the country. 

Although solving environmental problems and creating a sustainable world is daunting and difficult, the promising news is that when we act together, we are stronger and change will be inevitable.
