UAE Biodiversity Diversity Stories

Dunes of Diversity
A Tapestry of UAE Life

My Zalu has been privileged to partner with Al Mawakeb Schools to empower students with biodiversity knowledge and creative expression through research, hands-on activities, and story creation. With the help and support of the school, their teachers, and fellow learners, students crafted 16 short stories on different elements of biodiversity, such as the Arabian leopard, and the mangrove tree. The book is scheduled to be published and distributed in early December 2023.

The students’ book is currently being edited and prepared for publication. The students’ stories will be translated and distributed to foster a “by young people for young people” ethos and ensure the widespread dissemination of environmental messages across schools, regions, and countries, facilitating cross-cultural knowledge exchange and promoting biodiversity awareness across different landscapes.
Overall, the partnership between My Zalu and Al Mawakeb Schools is a remarkable example of how education and collaboration can inspire and empower young people to become champions of the environment.

From Reading to Action

In collaboration with young volunteers for the environment in Zimbabwe, we’re excited to announce that we’ll be sponsoring and distributing books to a number of schools in Zimbabwe as part of our efforts to encourage reading and inspire action towards environmental care.

Our book of choice is Zalu and the Magic Pink, an engaging story that teaches children about the importance of protecting the environment. We’ll be engaging with the children through reading sessions and other educational activities over a period of eight weeks.

During this time, children will be encouraged to come up with their own environmental campaigns inspired by the book, both as a club and a school chapter. We believe that this project will not only encourage reading, but also inspire innovation and action towards environmental care.

We’re proud to be partnering with these young volunteers in Zimbabwe, and we hope that this project will not only benefit the children, but also have a positive impact on the environment in their communities. Join us on this exciting journey as we empower the youth to make a difference and create a better future for us all.
