(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) H E Mohammed bin Salim bin Said al Toobi, Minister of Environment and Climate Affairs, recently met youths who represented Oman in expeditions programmes to Antarctica. 

The expedition programmes, launched by adventurer Robert Swan in 1993, focus on sustainable development, promotion of recycling and use of renewable energy to fight climate change.

A press release said that the meeting was attended by Badir A'Rahbi, the first Omani to go to the South Pole in 2011, Zainah al Tawaih, the first Omani woman to go to Antarctica in 2012, Buthaina al Mahrooqi and Yahya A'Salmani, the first Omani specialist in environmental media to go to the South Pole in 2013. H E Toobi expressed happiness over the youths' achievements.

The participants thanked H E Toobi for giving them an opportunity to explain the role they played.

The expeditions also included programmes in other fields, such as media communication to raise and promote environmental awareness among society, the release said.
