Emily's Garden

From 1st - 3rd March, a team of cyclists* will ride the Haute Route Oman  under the team name, "Emily's Garden".

Emily’s Garden was set up in memory of Emily Jewitt, who passed away in 2018. Emily lived in Oman and The Netherlands. Each country left an imprint on her. She was deeply committed to the environment, and during her time in The Netherlands, Emily was an active member of the ECO committee at her school; setting up recycling projects, raising awareness of energy saving, and part of an ongoing tree planting project. She had big plans to improve the impact that humans have on the world.

All money raised by Emily's Garden will go to The Green School Initiative, which is a programme run by the Environment Society of Oman .

The Green School Initiative strives to encourage eco-friendly awareness and promote a conservation culture within schools across the Sultanate of Oman. Students will be encouraged to take the lead and be innovative in making their schools greener, focusing on the main themes of waste management, water and energy efficiency and maintaining Oman’s culture and heritage.

There are strong parallels between the ECO committee that Emily was part of in The Netherlands and the Green Schools Initiative. It is fitting that she can, in some way, give back to Oman, which was her home for five and a half years. We hope that the initiative inspires a generation of Omani students to help create a greener future.
