For the benefit of future generations, these changes must be directed towards addressing human needs. We will do this by bringing together the world’s greatest minds. AREA 2071 is designed to help these people thrive – both the next generation of Emirati innovators and the best talent from across the world.
The bigger your vision, the bigger your achievement will be.His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum
By the year 2071, the UAE will be the world’s leading nation. This will be achieved through the implementation of a series of bold initiatives across a variety of industries, mandated by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, in the UAE Centennial Plan.
AREA 2071 is a physical manifestation of this vision with the sole purpose of creating positive global impact.
Our systems, from education to transport to healthcare, were designed and built at a different time. Humanity’s needs have changed since then, but the systems have not. In order to make substantial change – the kind that reaches billions around the world – we need to begin asking disruptive questions and evolving global systems.
We will begin answering these questions through our challenges.
