Masdar City in Abu Dhabi

The United Arab Emirates is one of the world’s largest consumer of energy, especially in terms of cooling and transportation. Masdar city tries to change that problem by being a carbon-neutral and car-free space.

Using carbon-based fossil fuels has two major drawbacks:
It degrades our environment through air pollution, and it contributes to global warming through carbon dioxide gas emission. In order to mitigate these threats, human societies have several solutions, the main two are:

1. Use less energy
2. Use alternative, non-polluting and renewable sources of energy.

Masdar City tries to tackle these two challenges through reorganizing the city’s urban planning, and proposing sustainable transportation and cooling strategies. It gives an insight on how to design a sustainable city with low-energy consumption yet providing a comfortable life style. The existing neighbourhood is extremely interesting to visit which allows us to cover different aspects on our tours. The field trip program is made of two different parts:

1- Engaging Guided Tour

The participants get to see a ‘real size’ sustainability experiment. They get first hand scientifically supported explanations along with several discussions that allow individuals to give their input and reflect.

2 - Educational Game

The participants engage in a treasure hunt and/or a workshop. The activity involves the topics that were discussed during the tour in order for participants to apply their understanding.
