The YFEL annual calendar of activities is carefully designed, enabling members to widen their knowle...

Four YFEL students from Masdar Institute collected 68 kg of trash, including barbeque litter, plastic buckets and even a 3kg motor, as part of a Volkswagen “Clean the Desert Campaign” on March 17 in association with Siemens and Rotana. It involved 250 volunteers using 20 VW SUVs to drive into the desert near Dubai to collect garbage. In just two hours, the volunteers collected 1,000 kg of waste. But it was the four-member YFEL-Masdar team that collected the most of any group participating in the event!

Later in the day, the founder of Plastic Not So Fantastic (PNSF) made an informative presentation at the Amwaj Rotana on camel deaths caused by eating plastic litter.
