Youth Actions for Mangrove Conservation by Green Hope Foundation

In January 2018, members of the youth sustainability organization, Green Hope Foundation, conducted a field trip for young people with the aim to engage them to raise awareness about mangrove conservation. A group of over 20 youth kayaked to the mangroves off the coastline in Dubai. The activity also involved several hours of cleaning the litter which was polluting the environment and disturbing the ecosystem.  It was a day of conservation action and the group followed up with a workshop to raise awareness about environmental conservation.
