    WWF and EWS-WWF hosted the prestigious TEDxWWF conference in Abu Dhabi. Previously held in Geneva and Singapore, Abu Dhabi was the third city to host TEDxWWF, and this was the first time the conference visited the Middle East.

    Thanks to all our brilliant speakers and audience (both in Abu Dhabi and across the globe) for making TEDxWWF 2013 a place where great ideas were exchanged.

    Theme: One Planet Living

    TEDxWWF 2013's theme stemmed from WWF's overall vision to create a world where we can all live in harmony with nature within the limits of our one planet.

    Humans, like every other species on the planet, depend on healthy ecosystems for survival. Nature provides essentials like clean water, food and medicines, while intact ecosystems also help regulate our weather and climate. However, our demand on natural resources means we are using 50 per cent more resources than the Earth can provide.

    As humans, we have no choice but to make changes to the way we live in order to keep our planet healthy.


    We would like to thank our partners for their generous support.
