Climate Future Week kicks off in Dubai
Climate Future Week, a major event dedicated to raising awareness of climate change, kicks off in Dubai on Tuesday, 26 September 2023. The event is timed to coincide with the ‘UAE Year of Sustainable Development’, and is being held in preparation for the COP28 climate summit.
It is organised by the Museum of the Future and think tank Fiker Institute. The event will be attended by government ministers, senior officials, business leaders and sustainability experts from around the world.
Climate Future Week will include six workshops, a majlis of climate startups, a film festival and a photo exhibition.
All events will focus on three main areas: the role of technology and proactive action in preventing global climate change, the role of entrepreneurship in developing innovations that support climate resilience, and the importance of raising public awareness of climate issues.
The first day will feature presentations on the climate roadmap, Dubai’s economic development programme (D33) and tourism, innovations in conservation, and the environmental future of the Arab world.
The second day will continue with lectures on linking climate and artificial intelligence, as well as forecasting sustainable global trade in Dubai.
On the last day of the event, a workshop entitled ‘Countdown to COP28’ will be held with the Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology and COP28 President-designate Dr Sultan bin Ahmed Al Jaber and Razan Al Mubarak, UN Climate Change Chair at COP28 and President of the International Union for Conservation of Nature.
The Museum of the Future acts as a platform to address climate change. Through Climate Future Week, the organisers aim to position Dubai as a global environmental leader.
