The organising committee of the fourth World Green Economy Summit, WGES 2017, has announced that the summit will be held on 24th and 25th October at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre. 

The event, held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, is organised by Dubai Electricity and Water Authority, DEWA, and the World Green Economy Organisation, WGEO in collaboration with global partners. 

‘Driving innovation, Leading change’ is the theme for the fourth edition of WGES, where innovation will be the leading talking point as it plays a pivotal role to boost sustainable development solutions that lead towards achieving a green economy. 

WGES 2017 is expected to attract more than 3000 participants making it the largest in the MENA region. The summit will be held in conjunction with the 19th Water, Energy, Technology and Energy Exhibition, WETEX 2017, and the 2nd Dubai Solar Show, as part of the Green Week activities in Dubai. 

Commenting on the announcement, Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Vice Chairman of the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy, Managing Director and CEO of DEWA, and Chairman of WGES said that the summit falls in line with the UAE Green Development Strategy launched by Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, to build a green economy in the UAE under the theme 'Green Economy For Sustainable Development'. 

Al Tayer added, "WGES 2017 is inspired by a quote of H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, who said, 'Innovation is not an intellectual luxury or propaganda but the secret behind the government’s existence'." 

"DEWA has organised the World Green Economy Summit, WGES 2017, in collaboration with the World Green Economy Organisation, WGEO, which was launched by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid in October 2016 and supported by the United Nations Development Programme, UNDP. 

"WGEO’s main role is to reduce the investment risks in the green economy sector, as well as support the global collaboration. WGEO operates through seven platforms including, countries, smart and sustainable cities sector, private sector, academia, organisations and civil society, youth sector and financial sector," he continued. 

The World Green Economy Organisation has a pivotal role in tackling climate change and finding innovative solutions for sustainable energy, water and environmental challenges, said Al Tayer, adding, "this role integrates with WGES efforts, as well as Dubai’s instrumental role, to enhance and implement the principles of green economy, as part of our wise leadership vision, and to reconfirm the Emirate’s leading position as a global hub for finance, business, tourism and innovation." 

"We are responsible to maintain and increase the success of the previous three editions of WGES, to reconfirm once more that Dubai is the world’s capital of green economy," concluded Al Tayer.
