For the last three years, TriplePundit has enjoyed a close partnership with Masdar, Abu Dhabi’s renewable energy company and the masterminds behind Masdar City. This year we’re kicking things off again by helping out with a blogging contest that will send one lucky writer to Abu Dhabi next month for Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week and the World Future Energy Summit.
The theme of the contest is on “smart cities and sustainable development” and the rules are pretty straightforward: Write a 500-600 word story addressing the following question:
“How can cities contribute to the advancement of sustainable development and address issues including water, energy and waste?”
A selection of the best of the posts will be published here on 3p and elsewhere and the lucky winner will be off to the middle east for a truly fascinating experience.
