Al-Watan Daily: "ACK participates in Friends of Life environment campaign"


Finally some Earth Day coverage!  Congrats to ACK for hitting several points I mentioned in my Earth Day blog entry: education and beach clean-ups.

"KUWAIT: In observance with Earth Day, the Australian College of Kuwait (ACK) organized a recycling campaign in collaboration with the Green Target Company, a locally owned recycling enterprise, on Wednesday, April 22, 2009, at its West Mishref campus.

In an ecoـconscious effort to introduce a green culture, ACK strives to encourage its staff and students towards paper conservation. Recycling boxes have been distributed across the campus in order to raise the level of ecological awareness amongst the ACK community through minimizing waste and recycling used paper.

This initiative stems from ACK''s Corporate Social Responsibility program in campaigning its environmental awareness events in order to educate students on the benefits of recycling used paper.

ACK will also participate in a beach cleanـup campaign being organized by the Friends of Life organization to take place on Saturday April 25, 2009, at the Shuwaikh Beach proceeding at 3:00 pm.The aim of the campaign is to raise environmental awareness.

These activities demonstrate ACK''s vision in "Enabling Human Potential within a Culture of Care." ACK continues its efforts in promoting environmental sustainability awareness via these innovative programs." (for link click
