Dubai Municipality has launched Sustainability Talks initiative comprising of a series of educational seminars and interactive workshops in the field of sustainability and renewable energy aimed at raising awareness on sustainability among the members of the society.

Each session will focus on different aspects of sustainability, through which the current and future challenges of the specific topics will be presented and solutions will be discussed in an interactive and educative way that explores Dubai's sustainable future.

The move is in line with the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, to make Dubai one of the smartest and most sustainable cities in the world by 2021. The initiative is also as part of the Municipality’s keenness to achieve the UAE's sustainability strategies.

Dubai Municipality held the first ever talk in the series of Sustainability Talks on the UAE’s economic relations between the private and public sector, delivered by Najeeb Al Ali, Executive Director of the Office of Expo 2020 and attended by Dubai Municipality employees.

Al Ali presented all the steps and actions taken by his office in preparation for the biggest event in the Arab region, namely, hosting the Expo 2020. He also discussed the procedures for designing pavilions, steps and concepts of sustainability that are currently being taken into consideration in designs, which has taken a global character with the presence of a large group of world-renowned exhibition designers, who rely on the latest global systems and procedures in the sustainability process, which has become a key feature now in all countries of the world.

Concepts of sustainability also help to preserve the world's natural resources and protect them from scarcity and destruction. The lecture focused on educating the Municipality employees on how to implement sustainability standards and rationalise electricity and water consumption.

Ahmed Saeed Al Badwawi, Director of Applied Sustainability and Renewable Energy Department at Dubai Municipality said that by launching such initiatives to promote sustainability awareness among all members of society, the Municipality aims to make it a lifestyle covering all aspects of the society and also that it is an integral part of the overall sustainability system.
