The Emirate of Abu Dhabi, UAE, has a long tradition in conserving and preserving the environment. It has been implementing Environmental Education (EE) and Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) policies and programmes to address environmental and sustainability challenges.
ADNEC is committed to ensure the sustainable development of the Meetings, Incentives, Conferences & Exhibitions (MICE) industry in the UAE, regionally and worldwide. Being among the first UAE entities to make a Net Zero Carbon Events pledge and winning multiple sustainability awards, ADNEC is leading the industry as it actively promotes and advocates for environmentally friendly industry efforts throughout the value chain.
The Youth Environmental Education Conference (YEEC), running concurrently with the World Environmental Education Congress, offers a dynamic platform tailored for the youth. This unique event empowers young minds to delve deep into Environmental Education, express their perspectives, confront their challenges, and chart their aspirations. Furthermore, the YEEC bridges the gap between youth and seasoned practitioners, fostering collaboration in designing and rolling out impactful Environmental Education initiatives. Not only will the youth have a platform to voice their opinions and gain knowledge, but they’ll also have the invaluable opportunity to forge global connections and draw inspiration from peers worldwide. In essence, it’s a golden ticket for the next generation to sit at the decision-making table, share insights, and collaboratively steer the direction of Environmental Education.
