Posterity20, a COP26 initiative launched in partnership with the UAE Ministry of Climate Change and Environment, Arab Youth Center and Majid Al Futtaim, aims to mobilise role models to shape our region for a better tomorrow through creating a community of regional sustainability thinkers and doers who can mobilise society through identifying, celebrating the most extraordinary sustainability impact leaders of our age.
