Century Financial and Khaleej Times recently came together to felicitate the winners of the â€˜My Nation My Visionâ€™ initiative.
The campaign was launched on the social media channels of Century Financial and Khaleej Times last year, encouraging citizens and residents to share their visions for the future on a dedicated microsite.
The initiative received an overwhelmingly positive response with more than 11,000 vision entries submitted. After a thorough selection process, 49 winners were selected and felicitated at the International Centre for Biosaline Agriculture (ICBA).
The top three winners â€” Shobhika Kalra, Haider Sharif and Minette Escober Javier â€” won gold coins.
As part of the ceremony, all the winners had the opportunity to plant 49 saplings of the UAEâ€™s National Tree, the â€˜Ghafâ€™ tree, with their name tags on it, facilitated with Team Goumbook.
As the initiative stands for a better tomorrow, both Century Financial and Khaleej Times saw an opportunity to make a difference to the UAEâ€™s environment and help plant the Ghaf tree saplings, by giving winners a chance to do the same. The ceremony was held was carried out respecting Covid-19 guidelines.
