The falcon wing-shaped UAE Pavilion has wowed millions of visitors during Expo 2020 Dubai. The LEED Platinum-certified building has been repurposed and now launched as the UAE House of Sustainability.
According to the Year of Sustainability team, the UAE House of Sustainability, located in the Green Zone, will be open to visitors from December 3 to 12. The space will welcome both residents, and visitors who will be in the UAE as Expo City Dubai hosts the climate change conference COP28 from November 30 till December 12.
It will present a “multisensory guest experience that will showcase the breadth of the UAE’s journey towards a net zero future”.
The space features three main areas: Sustainability Oasis, Our Journey of Collective Progress, and Our Future of Sustainable Flourishing.
It will host public activations during COP28, including PopCOP sessions that will be located in the Sustainability Oasis. This series of climate action workshops will allow registered participants to take part in immersive activities and meditative experiences, conduct a personal stocktake of their sustainable behaviours, and learn design principles and application methods to achieve climate impact.
Participants will be able to share their reflections, along with their hopes for the future with the climate leaders and negotiators at COP28.
