Consumption Patterns and Positive interaction with the environment in the “Rights of Nature” event for Environmental Citizenship Program

In a fun, competitive and educational environment, parents and their children enjoyed two event organized by the Environmental Citizenship Program under Bahrain Woman Society for Human Development.  “Rights of Nature” was the title of both events held on Saturday 26 August 2017 at Ramli Complex and on 19 September 2017 at Al-Ayam Cultural Festival as part of the “Creativity Corners”.

Audience from all age groups were attracted to the different corners where environmental concepts were introduced through interactive activities and competitions. One corner focused on raising awareness on the importance of seeds and the benefits of replanting them. Another corner was dedicated for handcrafts, to make “Zero Waste” lunch by carefully choosing items that are healthy and produce the least amount of waste. Examples of a “Zero Waste Bag” includes replacing aluminum and nylon sandwich wraps with reusable boxes.

In addition, there was a storytelling corner to present “Seed Story” which summarizes the basic right of nature by returning seeds to the soil, where it belongs to, and where it ends, to bloom and serve the next generations.
