Landmark Mangrove Project
With the launching of the Landmark Mangrove Project, our main goal in Green Abu Dhabi has been fulfilled. We had set out to galvanize our community, get them involved and help spread the logic that cleaning up a mangrove is a good thing for everyone, and should be an easy thing to execute. But we didn't want to hold anyone's hand, or do a job for them without them understanding why. This had to be a project funded by the people and understood by them that this is theirs, after all, they paid for it with their purchases and their attendance. Therefore with the support of our corporate community and our schools, universities, friends in the Government and Patrons we were able through our Art Exhibitions and the sales of both art and merchandise raise all we needed from the public directly.
Now, today, thanks to Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, the Minister of Culture, Youth and Communtiy Development and the undying support of Mubadala, MASDAR, as well as our friends in the Abu Dhabi Municipality along with our multiple sponsors and partners we have a real project of 9 cleanups for the year. Each one is listed and described on our website and we hope you can enjoy the pics and learn more about the effort and the people and companies involved. Whats more important however, is to realize, this only happens because a group of people choose to act, and choose to work together for the benefit of the community. So we encourage you, to think twice, and give us a call and find out how you can be involved if you wish to.
We always hold the mangrove cleanups around the 3'rd Friday of every month and we avoid the months of June, July, and August.
