The primary objective of this event is to highlight the importance of ‘Going Green’ and spreading this critical message to our local communities. We sometimes live on this planet as if we have another one to go to!
The event will feature the concept of ‘Elevator Pitches’ that proved to be a favorite with aspiring entrepreneurs during the inaugural event. The 26th December event will continue to be supported by Enpark, the Energy and Environment Park. Those interested in joining this event can register online at http://www.go-green.ae.”
