Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week 2015

Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (ADSW) is a global platform that unites thought leaders, policy makers and investors to address the interconnected challenges affecting the widespread adoption of renewable energy and sustainable development. With the global population set to reach nine billion by 2050, ADSW promotes collaborative thinking and co-development to accelerate the sustainable solutions required to support rapid economic and population growth. An Abu Dhabi government initiative, ADSW is the largest gathering on sustainability in the history of the Middle East and a significant forum encouraging the dialogue and actionable outcomes that support sustainability worldwide.

Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (ADSW) is the largest gathering on sustainability in the Middle East, and a significant platform for international dialogue and cooperation.

In 2014, ADSW welcomed over 32,000 participants from 170 countries, in an effort to:

  • Tackle the world’s pressing issues in energy, water and environment
  • Address water challenges in arid regions
  • Elevate the water-energy nexus topics on the global agenda
  • Encourage dialogue between stakeholders to strengthen strategic partnerships
  • Stimulate investment in sustainable water, energy and environment projects
  • Empower young generations and entrepreneurs

This year, from January 17 – 24, 2015 (ADSW Festival is on the 23rd & 24th), ADSW will again bring world leaders, policy makers, thought leaders, decision makers, experts, scientists, business leaders and academics together to discuss and address the energy and sustainability challenges of the future.

Anchored by the World Future Energy Summit (WFES), the 2015 programme will feature a series of complementary events, conferences and exhibitions, including the International Water Summit (IWS); the Abu Dhabi Renewable Energy Conference; the Zayed Future Energy Prize Award Ceremony; the General Assembly of the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA); and EcoWASTE.
