The Environment Agency, Abu Dhabi (EAD) premiered Zayed’s Antarctic Lights, a documentary that chronicled a two-week expedition to Antarctica by three EAD staff members as they witnessed and studied first-hand the impact of global warming and climate change, at VOX Cinemas in Yas Mall, Abu Dhabi on 20 November 2018. The audience included school students and representatives from the Abu Dhabi Government.

The UAE is one of the countries vulnerable to the effects of climate change. With nearly 1,300 kilometres of coastline, it is imperative that the UAE undertakes collaborative efforts to mitigate the risks of rising sea levels.

The film features Rashed Al Zaabi, a mammologist at EAD; Mariam Al Qassimi, Communication Specialist at EAD and the UAE Co-ordinator of Jane Goodall’s Roots and Shoots programme; and Winston Cowie, the Agency’s Marine Policy Manager - who are part of EAD’s ‘Team Zayed’ – as part of the Climate Force International Antarctic Expedition led by Sir Robert Swan, the first explorer to walk to the North and South poles.

During their expedition, ‘Team Zayed’ lit up the Antarctic sky with 100 solar lights, sending a message of unity, hope and action on climate change to mark the Year of Zayed and celebrate the living legacy of the UAE founding father’s environmental stewardship. Each light represented a pledge of commitment to engage in community initiatives that will tackle climate change and global warming.

The screening was followed by a light discussion on Abu Dhabi's efforts to mitigate climate change and the importance of collaborative action on it.
