"Seeds of Change" Exhibition Shown in Dubai
From June 6-10, 2010, the SGI and Earth Charter joint exhibition "Seeds of Change" was displayed at the Emirates Group's headquarters in Dubai to raise awareness among staff and visitors about environmental issues. The exhibition was part of the celebrations centered around World Environment Day on June 5.
After viewing the exhibition, Paul Zissermann, manager of Environment Affairs for Emirates Group, stated that the exhibition "is an opportunity to learn more about our impact on the environment and to make a personal pledge to improve your environmental footprint at work and home."
Since its launch, the "Seeds of Change" exhibition has traveled to many schools and college campus around the world where it has been well received as a medium for enhancing awareness about sustainability and our common future. The traveling exhibition serves to help establish a sound ethical foundation for the emerging global society and to help build a sustainable world based on respect for nature, universal human rights, economic justice and a culture of peace.
