Down to Earth 2023

Mark your calendars: the UAE’s annual green gathering Down to Earth is back – on Sunday, November 26, 2023

This is the festival for culture-enthusiasts, the eco-conscious and sustainability-aware, taking place at Jameel Arts Centre and across the Jaddaf Waterfront Sculpture Park, Dubai!

The fourth edition of the crowd-favourite festival coincides with the UAE Year of Sustainability and takes place just days ahead of COP28 UAE, connecting the local community with the themes of the world’s most important forum for climate action. Free and open to everyone, Down to Earth features exciting activities for all ages themed around botanical, sustainable and eco-conscious living through making workshops, tours, talks and demonstrations, plus new interactive art installations, experiential performances and a range of exhibitions. 

Spanning across Jameel Arts Centre and the Jaddaf Waterfront Sculpture Park, the festival also includes a Green Bazaar, offering a broad variety of indoor and outdoor plants, eco-friendly and sustainable gifts, fashion and products from homegrown businesses, plus an exclusive sustainability-themed collection of books and design objects from the Art Jameel Shop

Teible, the Michelin Green Star and Bib Gourmand-awarded farm-to-table restaurant will be open for dine-in throughout the day with a menu featuring seasonal and local ingredients.

Stay tuned for the day-long programme!
