COP28 to introduce sustainable living

Dubai residents and visitors will have the opportunity to learn more about sustainable living during the COP28 International Climate Change Summit. The Expo City Dubai Pavilion will be open during the summit. Here, guests will be able to learn about sustainable living and attend a range of interactive activities.

Another new interesting location will be the Expo City Farm, where crops, fruits and vegetables can be grown. This pavilion will host cookery masterclasses led by sustainable chefs.

The Terra pavilion will host masterclasses for all ages on sustainable living. On 1 December, the Dubai Opera will host a concert by the La Scala Orchestra entitled A Concert for Tomorrow. The musical evening will be dedicated to the protection of the planet and the environment.

To adopt an eco-friendly lifestyle while travelling in Dubai, tourists are advised to use public transport such as metro, buses, trams, rail and waterways. Free drinking water in reusable containers is available at Dubai Can fountains, which are installed near popular attractions in different parts of the emirate.

You can get close to nature by visiting nature reserves, which are characterised by a wide variety of flora and fauna. Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve and Al Marmoom Desert Conservation Reserve are home to hundreds of wild animals, including the rare Arabian oryx.

Tours of the reserves are carefully designed to ensure that tourists do not disturb the local wildlife. The Ras Al Khor Reserve in the Dubai Creek neighbourhood is home to hundreds of species of birds. It is the best place in the city for bird watching, and it is free of charge.
