Milaidhoo Maldives Celebrates World Environment Day with Inspiring Community and Youth Initiatives

Milaidhoo Maldives celebrated World Environment Day with an array of engaging community activities aimed at raising awareness about environmental conservation and the crucial role each individual plays in preserving the Maldives’ fragile ecosystem. Emphasising that everyone, regardless of age, can significantly impact the planet, this celebration underscores the power of individual actions in creating a sustainable future.

World Environment Day is a global event that highlights the need for collective efforts to protect the environment. For the Maldives, renowned for its stunning marine biodiversity and delicate ecosystems, this day holds particular significance. The Maldives faces unique environmental challenges, such as rising sea levels, coral bleaching, and plastic pollution, which threaten its natural beauty and the livelihoods of its people. By participating in World Environment Day, Milaidhoo reaffirms its commitment to environmental stewardship and sustainable practices.


In collaboration with the nearby local island of Kamadhoo, Milaidhoo launched an inspiring drawing competition for children themed “I Can Change the World with My Own Two Hands.” The competition aimed to ignite the younger generation’s creativity and inspire them to think about their role in environmental conservation. The entries showcased a myriad of imaginative and heartfelt ideas, reflecting the children’s deep concern for their environment and their eagerness to make a positive impact.

Winners of the drawing competition were honoured with a special ceremony where their artwork was displayed. Attended by Milaidhoo’s management team and members of the Kamadhoo community, the event fostered a vibrant and supportive atmosphere. The winning drawings will be featured in Milaidhoo’s eco-awareness campaigns throughout the year, highlighting the importance of youth involvement in environmental initiatives.

Celine Pezel, Resort Manager at Milaidhoo, emphasised the importance of community engagement and nurturing environmental consciousness among the younger generation. “World Environment Day is a pivotal reminder of our responsibility to protect and preserve our natural surroundings,” Shuhan said. “At Milaidhoo, we believe that every individual, regardless of age, has the power to make a difference. Our collaboration with Kamadhoo Island and the drawing competition are testaments to our commitment to fostering a culture of environmental awareness and action.”

In addition to the drawing competition, Milaidhoo organised a series of educational workshops and activities for guests and staff. These included beach clean-ups and reef conservation sessions designed to promote a deeper understanding of environmental issues and practical steps to mitigate them. 

As World Environment Day draws to a close, Milaidhoo looks forward to continuing its efforts to safeguard the environment and inspire others to do the same. The private island resort remains dedicated to its mission of creating a sustainable and eco-friendly haven for guests while preserving the natural beauty of the Maldives for future generations.
