Welcome to the second day of Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (ADSW), taking place from 18-21 January. ADSW is a global platform for accelerating the world’s sustainable development, bringing together a unique fusion of global stakeholders to engage in dialogue and take action to advance the global sustainability agenda.
TAKING PLACE TODAY
Hosted by Masdar, the one day virtual ADSW Summit will bring together leaders from policy, business and technology to define new pathways for delivering a green recovery in a post COVID-19 world.
Taking place across three sessions, the Summit will centralize around three pillars - Live & Move, Care & Engage, Work & Invest. Each pillar will explore topics that will reimage sustainable development and open up social, economic and technological opportunities for delivering a green recovery.
In preparation for the Summit, please download the 2020 – 2030 Decade of Action whitepaper, which captures the takeaways from ADSW 2020 and the global developments of the last 12 months.
