The Educators’ Voice and Net Zero Heroes are two of The Hub’s ideas that the Ministry has already begun to execute. There are 151 national sessions, 127 international sessions, and 250 seminars being held at the Hub. All of this points to one important conclusion: The Legacy from the Land of Zayed will be brought to future COP.
