On the occasion of launching, Naila Al Mansoory, who heads the Children's City said that project would be adding more dimensions to the concepts the centre stands for.
"Children's City started as new definition to the very concept of educating child. We introduced how could education be a matter of fun without losing its essence. Now, with the Green UAE project, we go further with the notion of green education with fun & entertainment," she said.
Ahmed Bin Essa Al Serkal, Chairman of Al Serkal Group said the project was designed to help children understand essential environmental principles, issues as well nature-friendly ways of life.
"We are using a variety of teaching strategies and interdisciplinary instructional methods that are age-level appropriate and actively engaging students in learning in an atmosphere of fun," he said.
He further said that workshops, projects, plays, stories and many other innovative and engaging tools have been incorporated in the design of the project.
Shaikha Al Raeesi, officer with Children's City informed that children can attend the special sessions designated for the project on every Thursday from 9.30 am to 11. 30 am with the normal entry ticket.
Each month the session would handle various environmental topics such as water, earth, food, air, climate change, carbon foot print etc. This month, the classes will be focusing on food.
