Technology in Sustainability: the case of Dubai Sustainable City


The Institute of Sustainable Development hosted Philip Sinclair, an experienced IT leader, for a Guest lecture on “Technology in Sustainability: the case of Dubai Sustainable City” to celebrate the UN World Cities Day.

Not only does Philip enjoy living in Dubai Sustainable City, but he also initiated the collaboration between the City, Google Cloud Platform, Snaplogic and Shift Technologies providing innovative methods to help the City gain better insights from its Sustainability data.

 “Dubai Sustainable City is an inspiring example of what the future could look like,” shares Khadija Abubakar, a MA International Relations student who attended the event.

As the first operational Net Zero Energy city in Dubai, The Sustainable City is modelled to become an international showcase for sustainable living, work, education, and recreation.
