Abu Dhabi, August 26, 2019: The Environment Agency – Abu Dhabi (EAD) is set to take visitors on a journey to ‘Ecotopia’ – a futuristic world where people, nature and technology live in perfect harmony – during this year’s Abu Dhabi International Hunting and Equestrian Exhibition (ADIHEX 2019).
Taking place from August 27-31 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center (ADNEC), visitors to EAD’s stand will be pulled into an immersive, interactive and thought-provoking experience that fires up their minds and emotions – engaging them with the environment around them.
Ecotopia is set in 20infinity and is centred around innovation, showcasing an ideal balance between humans, nature and the environment – tying in closely with this year’s ADIHEX theme of Sustainable Hunting and Welfare.
Visitors to the stand each day from 11 am to 10 pm in Hall 8 Stand E10 will be part of an exciting community experience that cleverly mixes futuristic entertainment with insightful data, science and information.
Ecotopia looks to the future, encouraging visitors to consider the environmental questions of tomorrow – such as: ‘What if we could learn to live in balance with the earth?’
The aim is to drive environmental conversation, with the stand featuring a Global Abstract Tree which represents EAD’s conservation achievements and global impact – demonstrating how conservation and ecology are interconnected through a series of key initiatives.
The Abu Dhabi Plant Genetics Resources Centre is another important element, showing visitors that in the future it will be as important to maintain a bank for sources of species – such as seeds and genes – as it is to maintain a bank for currency.
These abstract visual elements will be combined with informative, engaging displays including soil samples and seeds as well as details of the Agency’s key initiatives – showing the journey from the past to the present and ultimately the future.
Visitors can define their vision of a future Abu Dhabi and choose their priorities for EAD on an interactive touch-screen, while a motion-activated game will see attendees pitted against falling trash – reinforcing the message that we are ultimately all responsible for the world around us.
Meanwhile, the Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital – which was established in 1999 by EAD and now examines around 11,000 birds per year – will showcase its 20-year history alongside the Abu Dhabi Animal Shelter.
At ADIHEX 2019, EAD will showcase its efforts in building the future, empowering new generations to engage with environmental topics while building further support for the protection of Abu Dhabi’s environment.
