The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), a public service infrastructure company, will be hosting a webinar on Tuesday 23 March at 10:30am. Free to join, companies can learn more about what they can do, why they need to do it and how their actions could shape the future of generations to come. Join the webinar here.

The webinar will be aimed at facility management professionals to help them understand the latest environmentally friendly technology in the facilities they manage.

Speak Up For Nature

For everyone, there is an opportunity to take part. This year’s theme is 'Speak Up For Nature'. Why not post a photo of yourself on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #VoiceForNature and say what you're doing to protect the planet?

Or, switch off all non-essential lights for one hour on Saturday 27 March at 8.30pm.

Marco Lambertini, Director General of WWF International, says that 2021 is a crucial year for humanity: "As the world tries to turn the tide and recover from the ravages of the COVID-19 pandemic and rebuild itself, we need to put nature at the centre of our recovery efforts to future proof our economies and societies."

“Earth Hour is a critical moment for individuals, leaders, and environmentalists to unite and call for urgent action to reverse nature loss and secure a nature-positive world by 2030.”
