  Issues

In cooperation with Emirates Environmental Group (EEG), ESO holds an annual Inter College Environmental Public Speaking Competition organized with the aim of developing a deep appreciation of the environment and an understanding of the challenges facing it through study, research, discussion and debate.

An open challenge is thrown to the Oman higher education student community. The students build and present strong cases on different contemporary issues and questions relating to the environment. The competition gives the participants a wonderful opportunity to showcase knowledge and talent, and serves as a good networking tool among government and private academic institutions.

Over 174 students forming 40 teams representing colleges and universities from across the Sultanate participate.
