As the first destination in Africa and the region to receive the Global Green Award in 2014, El Gouna practises sustainability each and every day. Inhabited by a vibrant community, committed to environmental friendliness, our hotels ensure those same green values are upheld across the town’s hospitality venues.
This year’s EARTH WEEK marks another planet loving celebration and we are inviting you to join and become one with nature at El Gouna!
Check out the full event schedule here.
The annual beach clean-up will take place and the entire community gathers for this unique event. It’s not just about picking up waste and clearing the beach, it’s a chance to engage with the people who make this place what it is and to truly experience the spirit of El Gouna. Casa Cook, Cook’s Club, Club Paradiso, Ancient Sands, Steigenberger, Sultan Bey, Dawar El Omda, Sheraton, Mövenpick and Abu Tig Marina hotels (Ali Pasha, Three Corners Ocean View, Fanadir, Mosaique, Captain’s Inn) all participate in this community activity with the passion to preserve nature’s pristine beauty and we can’t think of a better way for you to trek and tour the shores of our town.
Each year during Earth Week, El Gouna interrupts electricity consumption and cuts down further on its impact. It serves as a great reminder of the importance of energy conservation and how the simplest practices can go a long way. Cook’s Club, Sultan Bey, Dawar El Omda and Abu Tig Marina Hotels will collectively turn off their electricity for a few minutes, sending much love to the Earth!
Gounie & Green
HEPCA (Hurghada Environmental Protection and Conservation Association) partners with El Gouna in their shared dedication to protecting nature and conserving our planet’s valuable resources. This year they’ve planned an exciting training for staff, residents, and friends. The training will host a series of workshops aiming to encourage ongoing sustainability efforts, promote new smart green practices and most importantly, offer guidance on identifying and conserving endangered marine life.
Plant a Tree
Offering havens of shade under a burning sun, shelter from rainclouds, a playful hideout for the adventurous child and breathable air for us all, a tree is our most precious best friend. Casa Cook, Cook’s Club, Club Paradiso, Ancient Sands, Steigenberger, Sultan Bey, Dawar El Omda, Sheraton and Abu Tig Marina hotels are all ready to till the soil and plant new trees across the town’s existing lush stretches of picturesque landscapes.
Casa Cook will participate in the Earth market in Downtown’s El Kafr, offering locally made products, sustainable crafts and items made from recycled materials. Shop Earth friendly treasures and mingle with a like-minded tribe of free-spirited Gounies.
Reduce, Reuse, Race!
Another adventure that has become a lovable and much-anticipated annual event is back. This year’s raft race will continue to host creative explorers, with a special team from Cook’s Club, Sheraton and Mövenpick excited to participate! Teams gather at the Clubhouse, design and assemble a raft that is made entirely of recycled materials before heading to the lagoon for a friendly water race.
Goodbye Plastic: Brita is Finally Here
Brita filters are escorting bottled water out with no return. In its dedication to operate sustainably, Casa Cook is replacing bottled water entirely with clean, potable and frankly delicious drinking water thanks to having acquired the world’s number 1 water filtration system. Zero plastic waste is just a Brita glass away!
