The emerging role of sustainability and environmental practices on our society and environment is becoming vital.

An Educational establishment committed to providing an engaging learning environment, quality education and qualifications that are respected world-wide.


The workshop aimed to promote Environmental and Sustainable Practices across the curriculum approaches to Education, to develop deep knowledge on Environmental and Sustainable practices implementation and to build awareness on sustainability and environmental best practices, indicators,possible targets that will align Abu Dhabi University better in the Abu DhabiPlan 2030


Various fields of construction, engineering, management, technology, education and business have espoused sustainability concepts. Including sustainability concepts in technology, education can help students learn how to implement the dimensions of sustainability, economic, social, and environmental. The key take away of this workshop is the awareness and education regarding sustainability among students that can impact their competence to incorporate sustainability into their daily practices in and out of the educational establishment, their homes and in the community.


As a comprehensive consulting architecture and engineering company, Close System with a team of sustainable specialists behind them has an important role to play in addressing various needs and challenges of community, such as building sustainable solutions and aligning all our works with it. Raising awareness that starts from educational institutions is a beneficial initiative to achieve long term sustainable success.
