Deira City Centre partners with local schools for ‘World No Tobacco Day'   

Dubai, UAE, 30 May 2013 – Students in the local community will be able to put their artistic talents to use, with the aim to educate people about the dangers of tobacco use and the negative effects of second-hand smoke. This is part of a workshop organised by Deira City Centre, in support of World No Tobacco Day, a global campaign initiated by the World Health Organisation on May 31st every year.

15 students from the Indian High School and Indian International School have each created an interpretative piece of work that relates to the negative effects of smoking and tobacco use. The artwork will be on display from May 30th – June 5th in the LOVE Art Gallery, a dedicated space for community use near the Dubai Metro entrance, spreading awareness of World No Heart Tobacco Day in the fight to reduce tobacco consumption.

On May 30th from 10:00am – 1:00pm, the student artists themselves will be at Deira City Centre at the LOVE Art Gallery to speak about their creative process, and how they hope to fight the battle against smoking. 

Tobacco kills nearly six million people each year, of which more than 600,000 are non-smokers dying from inhaling second-hand smoke.* 

Deira City Centre recently supported Go Red for Women, a worldwide campaign by the American Heart Association to fight against the number one killer in the world, cardiovascular disease. Smoking causes 10% of all cardiovascular diseases globally, and is the second leading cause of heart disease after high blood pressure.*
