Qatari youth visit FDU

The Office of Global Learning in coordination with the Friendship Ambassadors Foundation hosted 12 students and teachers from the Qatar Foundation to visit the Metro Campus and to partake in a workshop about sustainability and the environment with other FDU students.

The Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF) aims to support Qatar on its journey from a carbon economy to a knowledge economy by unlocking human potential. It was established in 1995 by His Highness the Amir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani.

Like FDU, the Qatar Foundation supports a global mission, “…aims to unlock the human through its three pillars of Education, Science & Research and Community Development. This will benefit not only Qatar, but the region & the world.”

The visit brought together young people, who are in the process of becoming global citizens and who care about their environment and sustainability in the long-term.
