Field trip to the Sustainable Eco-Villa
28 May 2019
ADU students enrolled in the Natural Resources and Sustainability courses participated in an educational field trip to the sustainable Eco-Villa in Masdar City organized by Dr. Nida Qafisheh, Coordinator of the EHS program, and Dr. Manar Mfarrej. The Eco-Villa was launched in 2017 in support of Abu Dhabi sustainability week and in collaboration with Madar Farms.
The students learned how to promote sustainable living through the use of technology designed to save energy and water, as well as practical waste management techniques. The technology included Aero Springs Garden and Greenoponics that are used to grow plants and Zero Mass Water, a smart off-grid panel powered by solar energy that produces around four litres of drinking water per day.
