Why Do We Mark International Days?

SustainableOman, as a supporter of the SDGs and Oman Vision 2040, has embraced them as a powerful advocacy tool. Each international day offers many actors the opportunity to organise activities related to the theme of the day.

 

SustainableOman makes an international day, in addition to the Sultanate’s special days, a part of our awareness building campaign.
