WGES to Showcase Dubai’s Global Green Achievements
The World Green Economy Summit(WGES) 2019 will be held on 20th-21st October at Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
The theme for this year’s event is ‘Innovative Technologies for a Sustainable Economy’, in conjunction with the 21st Water, Energy, Technology, and Environment Exhibition (WETEX) and the 4th Dubai Solar Show as part of the sixth Green Week. It will be held under the patronage of HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
The summit will focus on three pillars: global international cooperation in a green economy; cooperation and international partnership to overcome global challenges, and achieving sustainable development goals.
WGES is organised in Dubai to support its efforts to become the global capital of green economy and sustainable development. Dubai has received the Platinum Rating in the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) for Cities certification awarded by the US Green Building Council (USGBC). This makes Dubai the first city in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region to receive this accolade.
