SustainableQATAR is an independent, action-based volunteer organization. We are a think and do tank that addresses environmental sustainability in Qatar.

Founded in 2008, SustainableQATAR raises awareness, shares actionable knowledge, encourages connections and collaboration between individuals and groups, and actively engages members of the public, private, and government sectors to take environmental sustainability action.

SustainableQATAR fills an important and much needed niche in information and knowledge sharing and dissemination. SustainableQATAR reaches, serves, and represents a broad spectrum of Qatar society regardless of nationality or status. We believe that the achievement is not only in the interactions with SustainableQATAR, but also in knowing that inspired members leaving Qatar want and do continue to invest time and effort into urgent global climate issues that matter, within families and workplaces, amplifying SustainableQATAR’s impact on climate resilience. SustainableOman is a direct result of expanding SustainableQATAR’s efforts regionally.

What can YOU do? Get local! To find purpose, meaning, and perspective while balancing a new home-bound routine during these complex times is a challenge. 

SustainableQATAR believes that now there is an ever-greater opportunity for getting involved, virtually, to show resilience! Positive energy and community actions can lighten our hearts and make us feel more powerful and in control. 

Volunteer time and put skills and talents to use. Small acts count and make a big difference.

Thank you to all the change-makers who are making this happen, in Qatar and live sustainably through COVID-19!
