Department Of Economic Development – Ajman Successfully Plants 100 Al Ghaf Trees To Mark Launch Of ‘We All Plant’ Initiative



UAE, 11 March 2018 -The Department of Economic Development - Ajman (DED-Ajman), in cooperation with the Department of Municipality and Planning of Ajman, successfully planted 100 Al Ghaf Trees at the Frontline International School, marking the launch of its new ‘We All Plant’ initiative. The launch of the initiative and the tree planting event are part of activities that DED-Ajman has planned in celebration of 2018 as the ‘Year of Zayed,’ which was declared by His Highness (H.H.) Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE. The new initiative affirms DED-Ajman's commitment towards developing and implementing a series of community-based initiatives that complement values inculcated by the late Sheikh Zayed, while also highlighting his achievements for the country and the Arab world. The ‘We All Plant’ program, which aims to advance environmental sustainability, is inspired by the founding father's belief that preserving the environment is a key pillar in the country's developmental process. Based on this, the UAE today has emerged as a global model for environmental security and resource protection. The Al Ghaf tree, which was highly appreciated by Sheikh Zayed, is the UAE national tree and one of the country's leading natural resources. In fact, the tree is protected by law, which prohibits its cutting while also encouraging people to plant them across the country. Haifa Al Suwaidi, Director of Marketing, DED-Ajman, said, “We are pleased with the turnout of today's tree planting activity and the launch of our ‘We All Plant’ initiative. Today's tree planting is part of the celebrations we have planned for the ‘Year of Zayed’ and also demonstrates our understanding of how important these trees were to the late Sheikh Zayed, who said, ‘Whoever is able to cultivate his land, I will help him and to those who cannot, I will cultivate it for him.’”
