Burj Khalifa’s Climate Call: UAE Prepares to Host COP28

Just days before the COP28 event, the government made a bold statement by utilising Dubai's landmark Burj Khalifa.

With the COP28 climate conference on the horizon, the UAE is poised to welcome the world with a clear message: “We must act now.” 

The country made a striking statement just days before the event using Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa.

A Dazzling Display of Commitment:

During a mesmerizing display, the world’s tallest tower transformed into a colossal thermometer, showcasing temperatures ranging from 1.0 to 2.0 degrees Celsius. 

The vibrant colors, shifting from blue to red, vividly emphasized the urgency of climate action.

Flashing a message highlighting the timeline from 1960 to 2023, the display emphasized the undeniable reality: “Our climate is changing.” 

The urgent call to Action followed, stressing the critical need to maintain the 1.5 degrees Celsius target.

This resounding call underscores the conference’s core mission to drive concrete actions and rekindle hope in the fight against climate change.
