Art Village Nursery, Electrolux and Goumbook working together for a green future!


“Planting a Ghaf tree today means cleaner air for generations tomorrow!”

Our member Art Village Nursery had the privilege to contribute to a greener environment by planting Ghaf trees together with our member Electrolux. Noor from Electrolux together with Nasrin from Goumbook started the morning by introducing the program, sharing knowledge about Ghaf trees and the environmental benefits of them in U.A.E. The children went out to the garden and planted a seed of a Ghaf tree and shared their dedication card
stating who they were thinking of when planting the trees.


With a focus on sustainability in the region, Electrolux has planted more than 20,000 Ghaf trees so far and has pledged to plant 5,000 more by the end of 2019. 

At Art Village they planted around 40 trees to support the program. 

The purpose of the initiative is to raise awareness about the importance of sustainability with the future generation, as well as educating and engaging young children, whereby they can learn how we all can make a difference to take better care of Mother Earth. 

Eco awareness is an essential part of the Art Village Nursery organization and philosophy.

The program has and continues to reach thousands of school children, teachers, and parents with the aim to raise awareness of our responsibility to our Planet. Art Village Nursery will keep in touch with Nasrin and Goumbook to follow the growth of their precious trees, and hopefully, when they are ready to be placed around Dubai, they can get some more planted in the community near them.

Thank you Electrolux and Goumbook, for creating beautiful memories together with Art Village Nursery!
And THANK YOU ALL for having the Swedish Business Council joining in during this amazing day!
