Water fuels every aspect of life. It’s essential for basic health and hygiene, and it drives society’s most essential industries: agriculture, energy and transportation. Without water security there can be no national security. In fact, water is essential to the stability of every country on the planet. Understanding water security means looking beyond immediate supply to political, economic, social and environmental impacts.

Through a project-based learning model, they will be able to explore the inner dimensions of Emotional intelligence and its role in the field of education.

Students wants to analyze why climate change and effects of it on habitat.

Climate change is a global crisis that requires urgent action to mitigate its impact on our planet. Through climate action, we can work towards reducing greenhouse gas emissions, promoting renewable energy, and implementing sustainable practices to create a more resilient and sustainable future for generations to come. This awareness has been passed on to school community through the project.

The students explored the importance of water for all living organisms on Earth. They investigated the sources of water. They learnt about the causes and effects of water pollution and researched how it can be reduced. Experiments were done by the students to enhance their knowledge about the water cycle and water filtration.

Our class Early Years BW discussed their interests with the teacher to select a theme for YLP. Looking at the interests of our young learners we chose the theme “Help save endangered animals” under which the learners investigated and explored animals around the world and what are the causes of animals being endangered. Focusing on SDG 15 – to protect, restore and promote sustainability. It was a great experience to see our young learners developing their leadership skills and showing their interest in being a leader. Putting their contribution to saving the environment helped our learners in becoming responsible and active global citizens and they also extended it further through practicing at their home.

The students gained information about weather and climate change by researching and exploring the facts of climate change. They explored that the climate is often defined loosely as the average weather at a particular place, incorporating such features as temperature, precipitation, humidity, and windiness. In the first stage, they learned what are weather and climate change. In the second stage, they learned about the causes and effects of climate change. In the third stage, they worked on a solution to fight climate change.

The students investigated and explore the importance of reduction and reusing stuff, strategies to recycle waste, investigation of trash and how it could be reduced, and learned how their small actions will transform the world. They participated in several projects, discussions and experiments were done by the students to enhance their knowledge.

Year 12A decided to conduct the YLP project in coordination with the Qatar Vision 2030 pillar of human development which promotes the idea of ensuring a healthy population: Physically and mentally. Nowadays, a lot of young individuals tend to develop eating problems which lead to chronic issues like diabetes and obesity. Research states that the trend in diagnosis of diabetes has increased over the decade amongst young people. Good physical health and well-being is essential for the youth in order to lead a healthy and prosperous lifestyle.

Considering Qatar National 2030’s pillar of environmental development and SDG goals 13 (climate action) and 15(life on land) our aim is to reuse, reduce and recycle electronic waste. We aim to raise awareness on electronic stewardship and promote it through conducting awareness campaigns and collaborating with companies in the State of Qatar associated with electronic stewardship.

One of the major destructions to Earth is plastic and microplastics. Most plastic is not recyclable and the vast majority does not biodegrade. Plastic products often break down into very small fragments called microplastics that can pollute ecosystems and harmful organisms. Microplastics are tiny plastic particles that result from both commercial product development and the breakdown of larger plastics. As a pollutant, microplastics can be harmful to the environment and animal health.

EHF (Engineering Hydroponics Farm) is an engineering design of vertical farming system to grow plants even in a small space. The technique may employ hydroponic, aeroponic, or soil growing techniques. The EHF endeavour to grow food in unfavourable conditions, such as those when arable land is scarce or non-existent.

“Snoezelen” is a combination of two Dutch words “snuffelen” – to seek out/explore and “doezelen” – to doze/snooze. The word expresses the combination between the sensory stimulation that awakens activity in the child and the relaxing, quiet atmosphere of the room. The human brain is designed to produce and regulate responses to the body’s sensory experiences. This link between the brain and our behavior is called “sensory integration.” For most people, this is a normal and typically overlooked part of their daily experience. But for an individual with a developmental disorder, including autism, the way the brain processes these experiences can be a major source of distress and discomfort. In some cases, the brain may overreact to these sensory stimuli. Other times, it may not react enough. A person’s sensory experiences go beyond the basic five senses and can negatively stimulate some deeper sensory responses. An inability to regulate certain sensory stimuli from any or all of these systems is called “sensory processing disorder.” In many cases, it can cause a variety of negative behaviors, such as acting out, fighting, meltdowns, spinning, rocking, or hand-flapping, as well as problems with information processing and development. A sensory room is a space designed to help an individual with sensory issues learn to regulate their brain’s negative reactions to external stimuli by developing coping skills for these experiences. they can also be utilized for individuals with ADHD, cerebral palsy, and Down syndrome, as well as for individuals with a variety of developmental challenges in the area of communication, movement and balance, and social skills. While it can be a calm space where they can regain control of their emotions, a sensory room can also provide a low-stress, fun environment for an individual to work through their emotions and reactions to certain stimuli. Benefits of sensory rooms • Calming Effects • Stimulation • Socialization • Improved Focus • Motor Skills, Cognitive, Sensory Development

Biosecurity is the prevention of disease-causing agents entering or leaving any place where they can pose a risk to farm animals, other animals, humans, or the safety and quality of a food product. The COVID-19 pandemic is an example of an infringement on biosecurity that posed a serious threat to the world. Our project aims to spread awareness of biosecurity so that the chance of such a pandemic affecting the world in the future will be lessened.

Social media refers to the means of interactions among people in which they create, share, and/or exchange information and ideas in virtual communities and networks. The Office of Communications and Marketing manages the main Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn and YouTube accounts. As a class we are going to research and analyze the advantage and disadvantage of social media. Social media is big problem comes in the form of interfering with how much time, attention, and effort you put in doing something worthwhile. We all have 24 hours a day and seven days a week. Multiple studies have found a strong link between heavy social media and an increased risk for depression, anxiety, loneliness, self-harm, and even suicidal thoughts. Social media has also reduces activity in the amygdala, the part of the brain responsible for anxiety and fear. And it makes positive social interactions rewarding, so it's no surprise that it plays a central role in developing trust. After we research, we are going to create online surveys to know about people opinion. We will also analyze them to come up with a conclusion. Then we are going to find the problem and come up with a solution for it. After we done with all of this we are going to spread awareness on our by making posters, videos, talk over and a lot of activities. We are also going to make a 3d model which shows info about Social Media. At the end, we are going to make a website where we will attach our e-book about our research.

We aim to address the growing demand for smart cities all around the world and especially Qatar and such a project should contribute to the overall sustainability of the country.

The Global Goals. Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity likewise, as the volume of waste increases, the land needed to contain them also needs to expand. In addition, paper wastes are often burned, causing air pollution, and some of the chemicals contained in these products may damage the environment loss.

The zero hunger SDG focuses on finding sustainable solutions to stop world hunger. It starts in the classroom and expands to the community by engaging the next generation in action-based learning.

This research study helped us to reflect on the challenges faced by elderly people in the era of advancement and technology. These problems are caused not only by health issues but also by their interactions with other people, especially their family members. Technology is also a common problem for them, as new gadgets and applications have been invented every day and these help lots of people to ease their everyday life. Lack of knowledge and expertise has resulted in the elderly using ignorantly. An individual can age well through increased physical activity, involvement in social and recreational activities, healthy eating habits, having a purpose in life, and intellectual engagement. The elderly population is increasing and the problems they are facing as well. The rising demand to support their needs such as financial and social affects their well-being. If people are able to live these extra years in excellent health and in a supportive environment, their capacity to execute the tasks they love will be quite similar to that of a younger person. When people live in environments that are both physically and socially supportive, they can still achieve their goals despite capacity decreases. Locations that make it simple to move around and have access to safe public spaces and transit are examples of supportive environments. This study has helped us to widen our views toward the challenges the elderly population is facing today. We conducted interviews and surveys to gather data and have come up with a solution to address their issues such as inspired software applications for adults.

The objective of our YLP project is to demonstrate how debate may benefit students' research, public speaking, and language skills, all of which are critical for success not just in school but also in everyday life, along with incorporating mission, vision & objective of TNG. Education, both secondary and collegiate, involves a series of choices. Students select among classes, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities to fill their time in accord with their interests. For some, athletics fulfills their vocational and competitive interests, still others opt into participation in cocurricular programs such as MUN and debate. Our project investigates the later phenomena, that is, why do students participate in debate and what skills do they acquire through debates? Our project’s first focus is on finding out the academic benefits like improved communication, critical thinking, information gathering and processing, writing, leadership skills, and how debate exposes participants to different academic fields. Second, debate’s impact outside of competition in terms of the roles debaters can fill in a democratic society In seeking answers to these questions and greater insights into debate as a whole, we conducted the secondary research and also analyzed the results from our own survey and interviews. The results were both enlightening and reassuring as they reinforced the positive attitudes towards debate as well as giving a greater insight into others’ perceptions of the activity.

Rooting from here, learners will display facts and current issues and will do observations and experiments.

Today, 2.2 billion people lack access to safely managed drinking water, and more than 4.2 billion people lack safely managed sanitation. Climate change is exacerbating the situation, with increasing disasters such as floods and droughts. 80 per cent of wastewater in the world flows back into the ecosystem without being treated or reused, and 70 per cent of the world’s natural wetland extent has been lost, including a significant loss of freshwater species.

Goal 1 aims to end poverty in all its forms, everywhere. For the first time, as part of the SDGs, countries have committed to reducing child poverty. Children experience poverty differently from adults – their needs and expectations are different, and for children, the effects of poverty can be lifelong. Nevertheless, child poverty is rarely differentiated from adult poverty, and its special dimensions are often not recognized.

There are so many animal and plant species are at a risk of extinction from the world. As it has become a major global issue we need to think about sustainable living of endangered animals and plants. So, we decided to explore on them and search for the solutions to overcome this major global issue.

Don't overuse water. Close a tap when washing dishes, and take short showers – Bathtubs require gallons more water than a 5-10 minute shower. Consider getting a water meter to be aware of your water usage. Organize a clean-up project for rivers and oceans.

Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development. Targets: By 2025, prevent and significantly reduce marine pollution of all kinds, in particular from land-based activities, including marine debris and nutrient pollution.

Natural disasters can strike anywhere at any time risking people’s livelihoods and threatening growth, development and poverty reduction, especially in the most undeveloped regions. Preparedness and affective planning are needed in order to eliminate the impacts of a natural disaster. Warning systems, safe buildings and well-established aid service can contribute to come through an extreme natural event and recover as quickly as possible from its consequences.

We started by talking about different places that students already know and they have visited. And then we started discovering more about Qatar by pointing it out on the map and knowing the neighboring country of Qatar. Then we talked about different landmarks of Qatar, discovering old Qatar and new Qatar, Qatar’s harbor, fishing, and pearl diving, etc…We discovered about ‘Desert Rose’ that has long bloomed under the hot Qatari sun has been immortalized in the form of Qatar National Museum. We discussed Qatar’s national flowers, animals, birds, and food. Also, we discussed the culture of Qatar, the festivals of Qatar, etc… We used PPTs and videos to help students better understand the different places and parents were also asked to take their kids to different heritage spots like ‘Souq waqif’ ‘Zubara fort’, ‘National museum’, and to visit different stadiums and so they were able to talk about their own experience while on discussions. While Qatar is modernizing quickly, the nation maintains its religious tradition and cultural practices. Family and privacy are important values in Qatari culture. Through this project, we tried to research and know about all the different diversity of Qatar.

The Youth Leadership Program on Paper Recycling and Waste Management empowers young individuals to become effective leaders in promoting sustainable waste management practices, focusing on paper recycling, through education, hands-on activities, and collaborative projects.

Our YLP Project focused on how to save the earth. Saving the earth is a critical challenge that requires concerted efforts from all individuals, organizations, and governments worldwide. We found that saving the world's natural resources are finite, and the population is increasing at an unprecedented rate, making it more important than ever to implement sustainable practices to preserve our planet.

The 3A YLP project was started by the class on SDG 14-Life below Water. SDG 14 is their choice of research topic because most of the students are fascinated by life under the sea. Their inclination and interest in this topic made most of them proceed with research and begin discussing it. SDG 14 aims to protect and ensure the sustainable use of oceans. This includes the reduction of marine pollution and the impacts of ocean acidification, the ending of overfishing, and the conservation of marine and coastal areas and ecosystems. And as their community engagement plan, Year 3A made an agreement with Elite Paper Recycling Company. The Elite Recycling Company has approved putting up a recycling cage for paper. This is how the journey started and continuously promoted an eco-friendly school in Qatar.

Teacher self-care refers to the intentional practice of caring for one's physical, emotional, and mental well-being as a teacher. It involves prioritizing activities that promote relaxation, stress management, and personal development. Year 6 B: The youth leadership Program revolved their research framework around their Teacher's health, as the students analyzed the burnout situations of the teachers, which were based on classroom management, workload and personal factors. Students planned the Do part of their research by introducing the challenge- Steps Count for their teachers in February. In the study, students were able to find some teachers who could meet the simple steps. However, it took some work for teachers to maintain the challenge due to the heavy workload and physical conditions. Based on the research, students suggested self-care activities, including getting enough sleep, practising mindfulness or meditation, engaging in regular exercise or physical activity and promoting monthly fitness challenges to motivate teachers.

Coral reefs in Qatar represent one of the most biologically and socio-economically important natural assets of the Arabian region. We are near to face the extinction of several endemic species that lives only in the Gulf. We have researched about how onshore and offshore construction activities (man-made islands in Qatar), cruise ship to function as floating hotel for fans visiting the Gulf state during the World Cup and increase in beach activities like kayaking, sailing, diving, wake boarding will adversely affect the coral reefs in Qatar. To understand the Qatar citizens’ perspectives and understanding about the coral reefs and its significance, we conducted a survey. Based on our research and survey we recommend some possible solutions which can be implemented to preserve world’s precious ecosystem with the help of science and technology, careful monitoring system in the coastal region and awareness programs among the young generation.

Initially, our Youth Leadership program focused on educating young people about the use of solar technologies and their impact on society. However, over time, our research topic evolved to explore the social and cultural barriers that prevent the adoption of sustainable energy technologies in different regions and communities. While we began our research by examining various solar-based technologies, we discovered that achieving true sustainability requires more than just technological solutions. Our focus shifted towards investigating the cultural and social practices that hinder the adoption of sustainable technologies. Through our research, we identified cultural practices such as aggressive driving, unhealthy food preferences, stigma surrounding car sharing, and elaborate weddings as significant barriers to sustainability. To engage with the community, we partnered with Mowassalat – Qatar’s Transportation, where Mr. Annaufal Rizqullah highlighted Qatar’s efforts to achieve 100% sustainable public transport by 2030. Additionally, our students conducted a campaign to promote a culture of sustainable practices in their school.

Introduction: The global energy crisis has had significant repercussions on developing countries, leading to various social and economic challenges. In this case study, students delved into the reasons behind major energy crises and explored how the absence of non-renewable energy sources has impacted the social fabric of developing nations. Focusing on Pakistan, they conducted surveys, interviews, and extensive research to uncover eye-opening facts that shed light on the difficulties faced by its population due to the lack of non-renewable energy. Findings and Analysis: Through their research, the students discovered that certain areas in Pakistan experience extended periods of up to 12 hours without access to gas and electricity. This lack of basic amenities has profoundly affected the lives of people residing in these regions, hampering their daily activities and quality of life. To gain further insights, the students analyzed surveys conducted by individuals from different provinces, enabling them to compare the impact on social life between areas with and without access to gas and electricity. The students found that areas with reliable energy supply demonstrated better standards of living across various indicators. These areas exhibited higher literacy rates, improved healthcare systems, and better educational opportunities. The comparative analysis emphasized the critical role of energy access in determining the socio-economic well-being of communities. Potential Solutions: During their investigation, the students also recognized that optimizing energy usage can contribute to significant energy savings. By efficiently utilizing available energy resources, developing countries can potentially save between 9% and 12% of their energy consumption. This realization highlighted a promising opportunity for mitigating the identified energy gaps and improving the overall energy situation in such nations. To promote awareness and responsible energy consumption, the students proposed an initiative called "Taqa Hour." Through this program, they aimed to educate fellow students about the importance of optimal energy usage. By taking small steps, such as turning off lights and appliances when not in use, students could contribute to reducing energy wastage and make a positive impact on the lives of others. Conclusion: The impact of the global energy crisis on developing countries, as exemplified by the case study of Pakistan, underscores the critical importance of reliable and accessible non-renewable energy sources. The findings of this research project highlighted the stark disparities in social well-being between areas with and without energy access. Furthermore, the students' identification of energy optimization as a potential solution offers hope for addressing energy gaps in developing countries. Through initiatives like "Taqa Hour," they aim to raise awareness and empower individuals to become responsible global citizens, making a difference in the lives of those affected by the energy crisis. By deepening their understanding of the energy crisis and its socio-economic consequences, the students have taken a crucial step towards promoting sustainable energy practices and fostering positive change in their communities and beyond.
