The UAE is showcasing its dedication to eco-consciousness, particularly with 2023 designated as the Year of Sustainability. This initiative, inspired by the values and legacy of its Founding President, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, encompasses a series of activities and events aimed at promoting sustainable practices. As part of this broader vision, the UAE is set to host COP28 in Dubai. This significant event is not only a gathering of world leaders but also marks the beginning of a seven-year “Action Era.” This period is focused on turning previous commitments into concrete actions, emphasizing the urgency of addressing climate change.

In line with the global efforts being mobilized at COP28, there’s also an opportunity for individuals to gauge their own impact on the environment. Savoir Flair's version of the Personal Stocktake Quiz is designed to complement the Global Stocktake, a comprehensive evaluation of how countries are performing in their goal to keep the temperature increase within 1.5°C. By answering 10 straightforward questions, individuals can assess their personal environmental footprint. This quiz serves as a practical tool for self-reflection, allowing people to understand and take responsibility for their personal contributions to the global sustainability challenge.
