KUWAIT: The Boule­vard launched its ac­tiv­i­ties for the cur­rent sea­son, the higher or­ga­niz­ing com­mit­tee an­nounced dur­ing a press con­fer­ence yes­ter­day. Ad­wan Al-Ad­wani, Chair­man of the Al-Salmiya Group Com­pany for En­ter­prise De­vel­op­ment, noted that Boule­vard pro­vides ac­tiv­i­ties for all age cat­e­gories. “We are go­ing to kick off our ed­u­ca­tional ac­tiv­i­ties in or­der to en­ter­tain and mo­ti­vate cit­i­zens and res­i­dents of all ages.”

Ad­wani noted that the com­pany’s man­age­ment has pre­pared ed­u­ca­tional and en­ter­tain­ment pro­grams for the en­tire year, as well as tourist pro­grams for en­trepreneurs from inside and out­side Kuwait. He asked gov­ern­ment or­ga­ni­za­tions to sup­port young peo­ple to es­tab­lish small and medium en­ter­prises and to adopt Kuwaiti youth projects at Boule­vard. “As part of our so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity, we have a ‘Lobby’ project that pro­vides stores of suit­able space at nom­i­nal rent to en­cour­age small en­ter­prises by young Kuwaitis and help them launch their projects,” he added.

He said that Salmiya Group will sup­port young peo­ple by var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties and events to be or­ga­nized in co­op­er­a­tion with gov­ern­ment and non-gov­ern­ment or­ga­ni­za­tions from the pri­vate sec­tor. Ad­wani re­vealed a 3D draw­ing fes­ti­val will be held to sup­port tal­ented youth and de­velop their skills. A free work­shop by artists from Aus­tralia to draw 3D graph­ics was the first event of its kind in Kuwait.

He called on in­sti­tu­tions and tourism com­pa­nies to pre­pare touris­tic pro­grams to get tourists from the GCC, Arab and for­eign coun­tries to visit Boule­vard, where the com­pany’s man­age­ment will or­ga­nize en­ter­tain­ment and ed­u­ca­tional pro­grams and his­tor­i­cal, artis­tic, recre­ational, cul­tural, the­atri­cal and other ac­tiv­i­ties. Ad­wani also in­vited the min­istry of ed­u­ca­tion to or­ga­nize trips for stu­dents to Boule­vard. “We haven’t for­got­ten the dis­abled, and equipped the park with suit­able fa­cil­i­ties for them. We would also like to or­ga­nize trips for them to achieve com­mon na­tional goals.”

In ad­di­tion, Boule­vard will or­ga­nize foot­ball, bas­ket­ball, vol­ley­ball, ten­nis, cricket and other matches in its grounds. He said Boule­vard wel­comes all me­dia, ra­dio, tele­vi­sion and satel­lite chan­nels, pub­lic and pri­vate, to record their pro­grams inside the mall. Ad­wani pointed out that Salmiya Group will de­velop pub­lic aware­ness and ed­u­ca­tional com­pe­ti­tions for visi­tors on dif­fer­ent oc­ca­sions. Com­pe­ti­tion among chefs will also be held in restau­rants that are lo­cated in Boule­vard on a monthly ba­sis to se­lect the best dish.

At the end of the press con­fer­ence, Ad­wani an­nounced the start of a com­pe­ti­tion for the me­dia, which have a unique role. The com­pe­ti­tion is about the best re­port cov­er­ing Boule­vard’s ac­tiv­i­ties and events dur­ing this month. There will be also a com­pe­ti­tion for the best footage for pho­tog­ra­phers.
