SMECEYI (Green Arabia) – Project Showcase at the Expo 2020 Dubai

On February 5th, the CITIES/NYUAD’s team Green Arabia showcased at the Swiss Pavilion their project and interacted with the visitors. For the Urban and Rural development theme Week at Expo 2020, the Swiss Pavilion, together with partners, attempted to draw attention to adopting the circular transition within an urban environment and hosted the awarding ceremony of the Swiss – Middle East Circular Economy for Youth Initiative (SMECEYI). This initiative was aimed at finding student innovators from the region and empowering them by showcasing their projects to a global audience. It was also rolled out to enhance Switzerland’s bilateral relations in the Middle East region across the verticals of education, research, and innovation.
