To affirm the developmental role of sports in supporting global challenges and in line with Sharjah's commitment to a greener environment, the Sharjah Commerce and Tourism Development Authority (SCDTA) planted 100 trees in “Al Muntather” protected  area on the sidelines of the Sharjah World Championship Week 2023.

The initiative, in partnership with Sharjah's Environment and Protected Areas Authority (EPAA), UIM F1 H2O, Al Batayeh Municipality, and Sharjah Police, aligns with UIM's global reforestation programme, saw the participation of Khaled Jasim Al Midfa, Chairman of SCTDA; Nicolo Di San Germano, UIM F1 H2O promoter; representatives of Sharjah International Marine Sports Club (SIMC) and drivers participating in the Sharjah Grand Prix.

The delegation also included the Sharjah Team’s two-time World Champion Sami Selio, his team-mate Ferdinand Zandbergen, the Victory Team’s Erik Stark and Ahmad Al-Fahim and the F1 Atlantic Team’s Ben Jelf.

Germano said: “This is an ongoing project that we have been involved in for several years. Every person has a responsibility to react and contribute to the growing concerns and issues facing the global environment.”
