HE said during his participation in a number of sporting events, organized by the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change in cooperation with Education City Golf Club, that the allocation of a National Sport Day since 2012 reflects the wise vision of the leadership in establishing a culture of sport and raising awareness of its importance and its role in the lives of individuals and society, in addition to expanding the base of popular participation in various sports activities, in order to build and strengthen human health and mental capacities to promote the objectives of Qatar’s National Vision 2030.

HE stressed that sports have a positive impact on human health and in resisting and reducing the effects of infection with COVID-19, which requires everyone, old and young, to be keen on practicing sports activities throughout the year, with the aim of raising a sports generation that contributes to the renaissance and development of our country.

HE Sheikh Dr. Faleh bin Nasser bin Ahmed Al-Thani noted the existence of a complementary relationship between sport and the environment, both of which have beneficial effects on human health and society, as the State of Qatar is making great efforts to preserve elements of the environment (air, water and soil) and reduce harmful effects on human health. The State also pays great attention to sports and encourages its practice, HE said, adding that this unique sports event is a good example of that interest.
