The Environment Agency – Abu Dhabi (EAD) successfully concluded its year-long environmental marathon program, marking the culmination of months of community outreach initiatives and environmental action. The program, designed to raise awareness about critical environmental issues and empower residents to become active stewards of their surroundings, targeted a wide range of demographics across the emirate.

EAD's marathon program incorporated a variety of engaging activities throughout the year. Educational workshops tackled topics like sustainable living practices, responsible waste management, and the importance of biodiversity conservation.

Schoolchildren were a particular focus of the program, with interactive sessions designed to spark their interest in environmental issues. Educational materials were distributed to schools, and students participated in tree-planting initiatives and environmental art competitions. These activities aimed to cultivate a generation of environmentally conscious young people who will play a vital role in safeguarding the future of Abu Dhabi's environment.

The program also included collaborations with local businesses and organizations. EAD partnered with waste management companies to promote recycling initiatives and educate residents on proper waste disposal methods. Additionally, collaborations with environmental NGOs allowed for the expansion of the program's reach and the co-creation of impactful environmental events.

The culmination of the marathon program was marked by a celebratory event that brought together participants from across the various initiatives. The event provided a platform to recognize the efforts of individuals and groups who actively contributed to the program's success and served as an opportunity to showcase the collective environmental achievements of the Abu Dhabi community.
