 Abu Dhabi will play host to the world-renowned TEDxWWF conference under the theme ‘One Planet Living’ in May 2013. Based on the international TED conferences devoted to “ideas worth spreading”, TEDxWWF is a non-profit event which allows for the exchange of innovative and sustainable ideas to the global community.

Coming to the United Arab Emirates for the first time, TEDxWWF is the third in a series of international events organised by WWF, with its first event in Geneva in 2011 and its second event in Singapore in 2012.

To-date, Emirates Wildlife Society in association with WWF (EWS-WWF), who is organising the event, has confirmed six speakers covering a range of topics from; innovation, renewable energy through to sustainability and art. The stellar line-up includes Andy Ridley, the CEO and co-founder of one of the world’s largest grassroots movements: Earth Hour, and Andreas Keller, the brainchild behind one of the most novel developments in using renewable sources in slums to provide a solution to energy poverty.

Ida Tillisch, Acting Director General of EWS-WWF, said: “TEDxWWF is an important event which brings together local and global experts from a range of disciplines and fields, who are committed to promoting sustainable living as a way of life.

“We believe this platform will enable the selected inspirational speakers to share insightful, relevant ideas and encourage other individuals to support or even seek more sustainable solutions in their daily lives. ”

Additional speakers at the event include; Ginger Dosier Krieg, the inventor of the bio-brick revolutionizing the building materials industry; Lucy Orta, a contemporary visual artist who tackles ecological and social issues through art; Majid Al-Qassimi, a UAE National veterinarian who is a vocal environmentalist; and Sara El Sayed, a certified Biomimicry professional and outdoor environmental educator.

Ms Tillisch added: “We encourage anyone with an interest in finding solutions to the sustainability issues our planet is facing to apply to attend, or gather a group of friends to watch the speakers in the comfort of their home. All talks will be screened live via the internet on the day.”

TEDxWWF will take place at the Sofitel, Abu Dhabi on Tuesday May 21, 2013.
