The seventh edition of the World Green Economy Summit (WGES) will be held on October 6 and 7, 2021 at Expo 2020 Dubai under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) and the World Green Economy Organisation (WGEO) will organise the summit.

Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Vice-Chairman of the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy, and Chairman of the WGES, said the summit would be held in conjunction with the Water, Energy, Technology, and Environment Exhibition (Wetex) and Dubai Solar Show, which is being organised by Dewa on October 6 and 7, 2021 at Expo 2020 Dubai.

“The summit supports the UAE’s efforts to achieve the UN (United Nations) Sustainable Development Goals 2030, the Emirates Green Agenda 2030, and the Dubai Energy Strategy 2050. In the UAE, several key initiatives have accelerated the pace of a green economy. Transformational projects such as building solar power plants, encouraging the use of environmentally friendly electric vehicles, digitisation, as well as building sustainable, low-carbon urban communities demonstrate the UAE’s position as a global hub for a green economy,” said Al Tayer.

The sixth edition of the WGES, which was held in 2019, had attracted high-profile participation and global media coverage.
