The Organising Committee of the International Horticultural Expo 2023 Doha has announced that it has received 50,000 applicants from citizens and residents to volunteer in the global event.

Interviews with potential volunteers have commenced for the "Green Team" at the global exhibition and meticulous procedures are being executed to determine suitability. The Expo 2023 Doha event is scheduled to take place from October 2, 2023 to March 28, 2024.

During the interview phase, the team will carefully evaluate the potential volunteers and assign specific duties and responsibilities aligning with their areas of expertise and interests, ensuring that each volunteer can meaningfully contribute to the global event.

Officials overseeing the volunteering programme within the exhibition's Organising Committee have emphasised the importance of the post-selection process. This phase is pivotal to the volunteers’ journey and will involve initiating introductory activities relevant to their roles.

The activities will encompass a series of training sessions facilitated by an interactive training framework, combining direct and online training activities, in addition to in-person workshops. All training and practical sessions will be conducted at the designated event venue.

The Organising Committee’s volunteering team have emphasised that the training sessions are an essential part of the programme, enabling volunteers to understand the magnitude of the event, the global contribution to sustainable development and the accompanying responsibilities entrusted to them.

Several applicants expressed excitement to volunteer at the Expo 2023 Doha Horticultural Exhibition, stating: “We are excited to participate as volunteers in this global exhibition, as this will help us acquire many skills that will help us in the future to adapt to different work environments and perform our tasks with perfection, by working as individuals or as part as a team."

They added: "Volunteering at Expo 2023 Doha is also a great way to consolidate the concept of community service, as we will provide support and guidance to participants and influencers coming from many countries around the world."

The volunteer roles offer a unique opportunity to engage in various aspects of the event, which includes visitor assistance, cultural engagements, festive ceremonies, and more.

Volunteers at Expo 2023 Doha will have an unforgettable and enjoyable experience, with an anticipated attendance of three million visitors. The volunteer programme is an opportunity to gain comprehensive training, gain new skills, learn from mentors, build relationships, and contribute to the global dialogue on climate change.

The selected volunteers will be assigned to Al Bidda Park, which is the designated site for the forthcoming activities surrounding the global event.

Expo 2023 Doha has thoughtfully organised various social and cultural activities exclusively for the ''Green Team'' to express their gratitude and appreciation towards the invaluable contributions of all volunteers.
