Students from the Environmental Sciences Section, and various institutions, such as BEVA, Environmental Society of Oman (ESO), Ministry of Environment and Climate Affairs (MECA), Natural History Museum and Oman Botanic Garden provided interesting and knowledge-adding exhibits about Oman and environmental issues. Dr. Hamed Al-Ghilani from the ESO, Mrs. Aziza Al-Athobi from MECA and Mr. Mohamed Al-Saidi from OBG also provided short talks regarding their institution’s advocacies for protecting the environment.
The post-event celebration event was organized by the Environmental Sciences Section headed by Dr. Suad Al-Kindi under the Department of Applied Sciences of the College.
