Sustainability is the key for Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority (TCA Abu Dhabi) who recently rolled out Eco Future – a family-focused exhibition that explores how we are all able to survive on a changing planet. The event will be launched in conjunction with World Tourism Day on September 27th, 2012 at Manarat Al Saadiyat on Saadiyat Island and will run for a year.
The exhibition is divided into six sections including Drinking, Eating, Enjoying, Moving, Building and Future City. Important issues such as facing humans today, including global resources, healthy living, climate change and other options for a sustainable future will be focused upon. Participants will learn about what we need to survive and will be able to make some choices about the future considering life in Abu Dhabi in 20 or even 40 years time.
HE Mubarak Al Muhairi, director general, TCA Abu Dhabi, said: “Eco Future is inspired by the future plans and projects of Abu Dhabi. Just as the decisions made by people now, impact the future of the capital, visitors will learn how different choices based on our priorities can have major effects on tomorrow’s world.”
