One of the main elements of the UAE's environmental conservation policies is to raise awareness among new generations to adopt a more responsible behaviour towards natural resources. This is supported by the launch of 'The National Environmental Education and Awareness Strategy 2015-2021' that was developed according to international standards and the expectations of the parties concerned.
The Environmental Awareness Strategy aims to:
Educate youth to drive the UAE to a sustainable future
Improve community’s commitment to sustainability and environmental protection
Encourage the active involvement of businesses and industries in moving towards environmental sustainability
Engage key government stakeholders to support environmental sustainability
Ensure alignment and effectiveness of environmental education and awareness efforts in the UAE
Build adequate capabilities in the UAE to enable the delivery of the strategy.
