December 1, 2021
As part of its impactful initiatives during European Union (EU) Climate Diplomacy weeks of 2021, the European Union Delegation in Egypt organized a Nile Clean-up event at Qursaya Island in Giza. The “Clean the Nile” event concludes a series of activities that the Delegation has organised to raise awareness on climate change impacts in Egypt in several governorates including Luxor, Alexandria and Aswan.
Ambassador Christian Berger, Head of the European Union Delegation to Egypt, said: “Climate change is one the biggest perils to this planet and to our existence. We need to join our forces, resources, and work together to counter climate change. The European Union and its Member States are stepping up climate action worldwide”. He added that the EU-Egypt bilateral cooperation focuses on climate friendly projects.
The “Clean the Nile” event was co-organized with Very Nile, which focuses its quest to promote and raise awareness on environmental issues, ultimately consolidating eco-friendly behaviour in individuals, communities, and institutions.
