'Reimagine' Virtual Youth Circle Series

Reimagining life post-COVID-19

The uncertainty of the COVID19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on humankind, and society must change the ‘business as usual’ status quo and take bold, effective action to transform how we live and work.

As change-makers and sustainability champions, it is our duty and a privilege that we share our opinions on how we want to shape an optimistic recovery for the UAE and our planet.

The Reimagine Virtual Youth Circles are our opportunity to work together with decision-makers in business and government, to drive change and a green recovery for the UAE.

All the data and insights captured during this series of Youth Circles will be turned into a whitepaper which will be presented to governments and business stakeholders to incorporate youth’s voices in the UAE’s recovery post-COVID19.

Participants who attend more than 5 (of the total 10 discussions) will receive an official certification on behalf of Connect with Nature and its partnering organizations, Emirates Nature-WWF, The Environment Agency-Abu Dhabi and the International Fund for Houbara Conservation.
