The event which concludes Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week is dedicated to raising community awareness of sustainability, brings in crowds with food trucks, live entertainment, and educational games and activities. The different Experience Zones include a Souk selling local and organic produce as well as an innovation hub filled with high-tech gadgets.
In honour of the legacy of the UAE’s founding father there is the Sheikh Zayed Corner to celebrate 2018 as the Year of Zayed.
The carnival atmosphere fills the Masdar City podium, while more food, games and activities are offered down at the newly renovated Masdar Park, including fitness workouts and a virtual reality experience.
