- Are you an environmental enthusiast?
- Do you want to help conserve nature?
- Do you have what it takes to start a change towards a sustainable future? Then YES! 2017 is the place for you!
As rising global temperatures are acompanied by changes in the weather and climate, many places have seen an increase in flooding, droughts or severe and frequent heatwaves - conditions which affect flora, fauna and humas alike. The planet's oceans and glaciers are also experiencing huge changes - with oceans becoming more acidic, ice caps melting and sea levels rising. Human activities have increased levels of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, further increasing the Earth's temperature and forcing hundreds of different plant and animal species to become extinct. The choices we make today affects the amount of greenhouse gases we put in the atmosphere in the near future and for years to come - impacting not just us, but everyone living on the earth.
YES! 2017 provides a platform for connectivity for high school students within the UAE and experts from across the country to come together and discuss the importance of conservation in the face of extreme threats to nature.
