Sharjah: Arada is hosting an Emirati Women’s Day event to support mindful, sustainable practices in the home. This is in association with Manbat, the master developer’s partnership with the UAE Ministry of Climate Change and Environment (MOCCAE), and the Sharjah Entrepreneurship Centre (Sheraa).
The ladies-only community event is designed around this year’s official theme, ‘We Collaborate for Tomorrow,’ with two forward-thinking workshops supporting the UAE’s commitment to sustainability goals.
Each workshop is designed to further strengthen connections between Emirati women with collective experiences and innovative ideas that boost family-focused sustainability.
The event takes place on 27th August 2023 with two hands-on workshops at YourSpace, the events hall located in Aljada’s Madar family entertainment district.
The Plant Workshop will be led by Ms. Eman Al-Marri, a self-taught expert in home organic farming whose drive to encourage more sustainable growing practices in the household has enabled her to become a popular media personality.
The session will include DIY planting along with learning exercises about sustainable farming, starting kitchen gardens, and encouraging fresh local produce for the family.
The Sustainable Pantry Workshop will be led by Ms. Fatema Showaiter, a seasoned Emirati chef and the culinary force behind Ark Coffee, a Sharjah-based café and restaurant.
This session will explore sustainable habits in the home and invite participants to prepare a meal using produce grown in the UAE and provided straight from Emirati farms through Manbat.
Admission to the workshops is free. Attendees must register through the Sheraa official website.
