AHU & Abu Dhabi UPC mark World Environment Day with
special session on 'UniverCity' programme
As part of its commitment to raising public
awareness on its various developments, programmes and initiatives,
the Abu Dhabi Urban Planning Council (UPC) outlined its
youth-oriented 'UniverCity' programme for raising awareness on its
Urban, Economic, Environmental and Social Development activities
under its 'Estidama' initiative during World Environment Day
celebrations held with ALHOSN University.
The 'UniverCity' presentation highlighted the importance of the
Estidama programme developed and managed by the UPC. Although the
main purpose of Estidama is to create a new sustainability
framework for all developments in Abu Dhabi, it is built under the
four comprehensive pillars of environment, economy, society and
culture. Held under the theme 'Planning for the Next Generation,'
the session covered the Capital 2030, Al Ain 2030 and Al Gharbia
development master plans and outlined the UPC's role as a
government entity in overseeing the physical master planning for
Abu Dhabi. UPC planners conducted the presentation.
"All members of Abu Dhabi's community have both the right and
the responsibility to learn more about the emirate's development
agendas. The Abu Dhabi Urban Planning Council's 'UniverCity'
program is an excellent platform for educating students and youths
in general on where their future is headed and what key roles they
can play in it. It also demonstrates the strategic role that
Estidama plays in Abu Dhabi's future development which ALHOSN is
committed to fully support," said Dr. Adnan Husnéin, Urban Planning
Department Chair, ALHOSN University.
The Abu Dhabi Urban Planning Council is tasked with initiating,
driving and supporting the emirate's urban development strategy
under Abu Dhabi Vision 2030. The Council's responsibilities cover
evaluation and management of land availability and use, urban and
environmental issues, mobility, infrastructure, and urban services.
Its Estidama initiative aims to transform Abu Dhabi into the
sustainable capital of the Arab World. UniverCity complements this
goal by tapping educational partnerships to demonstrate and promote
sustainable development throughout Abu Dhabi.
