The Green Dubai World 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.
