Sustainability Day, 3 May 2023

“We have forgotten how to be good guests, how to walk lightly on the earth as its other creatures do.”

Thinking of the words of Barbara Ward, Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi dedicates Wednesday 3 May 2023 to explore ways to create a more sustainable future for the community and the planet as a whole. Join us!
