Are you looking for some good news in the middle of the health crisis of a lifetime for each of the 8 billion humans on the planet? Here comes the sun!
Photovoltaics solar energy has been on a mind-blowing cost-reduction trend in the last decades. The cost of solar photovoltaics (PV) modules, for instance, has been divided by 10 in 10 years, and the lowest electricity prices have just been broken again by a solar PV plant: 1.35 USD/kWh. This price is a bid for the Al Dhafra PV park in Abu Dhabi and is 25 times cheaper than the price a German household pays for electricity!
Part of Eedama’s mission is to spread awareness, this is why we have taken the opportunity of this slow period to provide free live sessions on social media: They help reflect on negative environmental impact and improve it, and they allow spending educational and fun moments. Eedama has started holding weekly live workshops, and through these workshops, teaching more about sustainability. We cover various topics including upcycling, composting, gardening, upcycling DIY activities and much more.
Eedama provides professional training for different age groups and initiatives, raising awareness on various important topics of sustainability with every step they take. Eedama is currently collaborating with StartAD - NYU through training and mentoring, an Abu Dhabi-based global accelerator steering seed-stage technology startups to launch, develop, and scale their ventures.
At Eedama, we start any tour or workshop by asking what you need and what you’re looking forward to learning. It is important to us that you achieve the learning goals you set, and we aim to help you do that, no matter the diversity of these goals. For example, we hosted New York University of Abu Dhabi in January, where we explored different aspects of Masdar City in relation to the topic studied by the students in class. We did multiple sessions to cover various topics such as: General sustainability, Solar Photovoltaic Energy, Mobility and Transport as well as Social Justice and Sustainability.
