FFI & FAO Boot Camps: Dubai
🏢 November 22-26 #Dubai, UAE – Climate-Smart Cities
The unexpected sustainable side of Dubai is represented by the utopist project of sustainable city which has been built 25 km from the city center in an area where there was just a desert. Besides buffer zones and the residential cluster, the city has a flourishing park with 11 biodome greenhouses running the length of the Central Green Spine, with a total capacity of over 3,000 square metres for urban farming. The Sustainable City has begun cultivation with a plan to diversify and grow as many fruits and vegetables as possible in these domes and along the green spine. For this reason Dubai represents a benchmark for Climate Smart Cities. The boot camp will be held in the occasion of Expo Dubai 2020 (October 20, 2020 to April 10, 2021) focused on “Connecting Minds, Creating the Future”, which will welcome 190 participating countries, and millions of visitors from across the globe. Youth are at the heart of our World Expo. That’s why Expo 2020 aspires to create a meaningful legacy that will benefit generations to come, both locally and globally, spanning everything from innovations and architecture to friendships and business opportunities.
