Doha Environmental Actions Project (DEAP) is a group that has been active in Qatar for about two years in carrying out clean-up drives every weekend. The group on March 2019 celebrated its 100th beach clean-up drive with over 70 devoted volunteers.
The beach cleanup for the first week of May will be held at the Sealine on 3rd May. There are only limited spaces, please make sure to register to be able to participate.
Founded in May 2017 by Canadian Jeanne Brown, the Doha Environmental Actions Project's (DEAP) purpose is to restore the natural beauty of the sand dunes and beaches in Qatar by conducting weekly clean-ups that are both engaging and environment-friendly.
The DEAP team is now consists of over 2,000 volunteers from all over the world who love the nature, enjoy the outdoors, and have a penchant for discovering Qatar’s beaches and sand dunes. Besides the preserving aspect, another core mission of DEAP is to help promote the beautiful landscapes that Qatar has to offer including the Sealine Beach, Zekreet, and the lesser-known Musfur Sinkhole.
All the beach and sand dune clean-ups that the DEAP team has done was well-attended by people from all walks of life who wants to socialize, feel the fresh air, and make an impact all at the same time. Their pool of volunteers—who are mostly within the 30-50 age bracket—shows up every week to lend an extra hand.
