Future-proof our world for generations to come
The challenges we face today are complex. They require collective action across all levels of society - in our personal and professional lives, and at the societal and national scale too.

Together, we will drive transformative impact at scale across the UAE and beyond.

Bees and other insects around us are the foundation of our food system. They need our help.
Help us protect and restore the natural homes of our invisible heroes. Learn about their true value. Join us in planting wildflowers, restoring mangrove forests and creating water canals to protect our pollinators.
Why it matters: Our ‘creepy crawly’ insect neighbours are instrumental for the growth of about three-fourth of our agricultural crops. But their populations are on a dramatic decline – recent evidence suggests that insect numbers have fallen by 50% or more in the last fifty years alone.
