After Hours #7 - Earth Hour UAE
(Top image) This is the EWS-WWF UAE Dubai Office, the main base for Earth Hour UAE and we’ve only been here for 4 months now. Before this we lived in a warehouse in an industrial park and worked and had meetings in cafes and coffee shops around Dubai feeling like nomads for 3-4 months. So we’re very happy to be here and very pleased with it. The office is usually a lot busier than this but a few people are on leave for Christmas, although the pandas are here all year round to man/panda the phones!
These are the views from the UAE Offices, as you see our Dubai office looks out over Mall of the Emirates (on the far left behind the mosque) and Sheikh Zayed Road (in the distance on the left) on a clear day you can see the Burj Khalifa, but there was a lot of dust in the air this day. Our Abu Dhabi Office is on the 8th floor of the Abu Dhabi Chamber of commerce building and looks out over Abu Dhabi Corniche and beach (the first Blue Flag beach in the UAE!). A nice view to have from your desk, although it always makes you wish you were on it!
