We are members of a youth group, Green Hope UAE, working on sustainable development which depends on the three pillars of economy, environment and society. Freedom from all kinds of oppression is a fundamental stepping stone to sustainable development and the world is poorer with Mandela’s passing away.

Nelson Mandela, your vision will live forever and will inspire us, the youth, to strive for the future we want.
