COP28: A new farm that has been built at Expo City Dubai (ECD) and when the COP28 opens, the public will get to see firsthand how fruits and vegetables are grown in the desert.

Called Expo City Farm, these indoor and outdoor spaces will be teeming with climate-resilient crops in time for COP28 and remain as a permanent fixture in the Expo community.

It is open to the public for free and is one of the attractions for UAE residents and visitors to come to COP28 and actively make a pledge to the planet. COP28 or the 28th meeting of the Conference of the Parties of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is happening from November 30 to December 12.

During the global climate summit, the farm will host community workshops and cooking classes with sustainability-minded chefs and professionals.

Expo City Farm will also highlight the technology of producing water from air moisture, as well as BioChar or the use of carbon dioxide-absorbing sustainable charcoal.

Marjan Faraidooni, chief of education and culture for ECD, said: “COP28 is a major international climate event and we have Green Zone where families and the general public can be part of COP28."

“We call on them to take a pledge for people and planet – what they can do to make this planet better,” she underlined.

COP28 is divided into two zones. The Green Zone is an open space for the public to promote dialogue and awareness around climate action. The Blue Zone, meanwhile, is reserved for world leaders, government delegations, and those accredited with the United Nations body tasked with coordinating the global response to the threat of climate change.

Access to Expo City Dubai’s pavilions and attractions in the Green Zone which will be open to the public from December 3 to 12 is free during COP28 — with additional registration or ticketing requirements indicated for specific events.

Visitors should register for a dated Green Zone Day Pass at www.cop28.com.
