Yours truly is touring the United Arab Emirates’ green scene on Green Prophet’s behalf and wants to see you! After a very brief but incredibly well-serviced flight from Johannesburg on Emirate Air (my how times have changed; the flight attendants came from at least six different countries), I arrived at approximately 5am this morning. With a little help from the folks at Global Ocean, who are facilitating my participation at a series of screenings of an important documentary that exposes overfishing, we have a three week opportunity to learn everything we can about environmental issues in the Middle East.
I will be speaking at the Al Ittihad boy’s school, who are participating in our first ever eco-blogging competition, visiting Masdar, visiting with the UAE’s Most Innovative Design Couple, touring Sir Bani Yas Island, and meeting various eco-savvy businesses, designers, and hopefully government officials throughout the UAE. If you are interested to chat with us, if there’s an important issue that you think we need to know about, or if you are working in cleantech or sustainable architecture and design, please drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m dying to meet you!
