The Green Dubai World Forum

Green Dubai World Forum 2008, is held in commemoration of the anniversary of the historic declaration on Green Dubai 2008, made on 24th October 2007 by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE & Ruler of Dubai. This historic declaration has enabled Dubai to take Global Leadership in sustainable development in light of global climate change crisis threatening Mankind.

Green Dubai World Forum is an independent, Free Zone Organization. We are striving towards a sustainable world where values are as important a basis as rules. Our motto is ‘promotion of Green and sustainable development in Dubai and rest of the world. We believe that progress without sustainable development concepts is not conducive for

Our vision for Green Dubai World Forum is to foster the relationship between governments and private sector in order to achieve sustainable development in Dubai and the rest of the world. We enjoy a unique standing by recognizing and responding to two developments:

• The world’s key environmental challenges cannot be met by governments, business or civil society alone.

• In an environmentally challenged world characterized by complexity, fragility and ever greater synchronicity, strategic insights cannot be passively acquired. They are best developed through continuous interaction with peers and with the most knowledgeable people in the field.

To carry out its mission, the Green Dubai World Forum has developed an integrated value chain by involving world leaders in communities, inspiring them with strategic insights and enabling them through Green and Sustainable initiatives.

The Green Dubai World Forum 2008

Green Dubai World Forum will develop through the Forum of global scientists a comprehensively written document for a roadmap to a sustainable future in 2015 in line with His Highness Strategic Plan for 2015.

We need to understand sustainability not only in terms of product development or natural resource use, but also in terms of the human impact and footprint on the planet.

This Roadmap Document will do just that, and much more. It is not only geared towards economists and other academics, but towards the wider audience of activists, concerned individuals, and people in the process of working towards the future. The document will clearly discuss how the prescribed model works and can be applied to any municipality, state, country, or other entity. Roadmap Documents like this give us hope - hope that is based in science and that
is economically sound.
