Enpark co-hosts ‘Water Days’ event
Dubai, July 7, 2009
The Energy and Environment Park (Enpark), a sustainable community model for commercial and residential use and a member of Tecom Investments, is co-organising 'Water Days,' a key event being held as part of Green Building conference series.
The two-day event kicks off on Tuesday (today) with a series of training workshops on promoting sustainability in the UAE at the Conference Centre in Dubai Knowledge Village.
The ‘Water Days’ event is sponsored by the Canadian University of Dubai and leading manufacturers and providers of integrated sustainable water systems, including Grohe, KSB, Wacker and GE Water.
The second module in a Green Building conference series is being organized by Sesam Business Consultants. Each module offers presentations, open debates, a training workshop and project tours around important issues on green buildings.
Ali Bin Towaih, executive director of Enpark, said: "Water is one of this region’s most valuable resources, and how it is consumed is something that must be taken seriously by everyone. As Dubai continues to grow, the water requirements of the emirate will rise exponentially."
"Consequently, as responsible individuals we must be very conscious of our consumption patterns," he remarked.
"At Enpark, we strive to provide our business partners with opportunities to expand their networks and showcase their innovations and knowledge. This conference is a great tool to empower organizations and individuals in the region to seek better and more efficient ways to utilize water conservation," Bin Towaih noted.
"It is hoped that conferences such as these will shed more light on how we can ensure the preservation of this precious resource for future generations," he added.
Dubai Electricity and Water Authority, Fraunhofer Middle East, the Association of Professional Interior Designers and Green Technologies are some of the other supporting partners.
Complementing the objectives of the ’Water Days’ event, organizers Enpark and Sesam earlier organised ‘Solar Days’ focusing on renewable energy systems. The Green Building series will host an event from September 27 to 28 on ‘Architecture and Daylight’.-TradeArabia News Service
