In 2006, the Living Planet Report ranked the UAE as having the highest per capita Ecological Footprint in the world. In response, the Al Basma Al Beeiyah Initiative was launched in October 2007 by a partnership comprising the Ministry of Environment and Water (MOEW), the Environment Agency-Abu Dhabi’s AGEDI (Abu Dhabi Global Environmental Data Initiative) programme, the Emirates Wildlife Society in association with WWF (EWS-WWF), and the Global Footprint Network (GFN). The aim of the Initiative was to work together to better understand the Ecological Footprint of the UAE, and monitor consumption patterns in the country.
This animation is created by GHAFRI, with the help of baraa, we shared Ideas. However, this animation is done for the same project for different classes in our school on how to reduce carbon footprint and help protect out environment.
I hope you guys learned that we need to act before its too late, we have a choice and chance to make things right, to have healthy and safe environment.

In 2010 New York City added 54 million metric tons of carbon dioxide (equivalent) to the atmosphere, but that number means little to most people because few of us have a sense of scale for atmospheric pollution.
Carbon Visuals ( and Environmental Defense Fund ( wanted to make those emissions feel a bit more real – the total emissions and the rate of emission. Designed to engage the ‘person on the street’, this version is exploratory and still work in progress. Mayor Bloomberg’s office has not been involved in the creation or dissemination of this video.
NYC carbon footprint:
54,349,650 tons a year = 148,903 tons a day = 6,204 tons an hour = 1.72 tons a second
At standard pressure and 59 °F a metric ton of carbon dioxide gas would fill a sphere 33 feet across (density of CO₂ = 1.87 kg/m³: If this is how New York’s emissions actually emerged we would see one of these spheres emerge every 0.58 seconds.
Emissions in 2010 were 12% less than 2005 emissions. The City of New York is on track to reduce emissions by 30% by 2017 – an ambitious target.

Watch this animation to understand how human activities release carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases. These greenhouse gases traps heat in the atmosphere which leads to climate change. Titled ‘Carbon Footprints’, this two-minute animation was adapted from the ITE College East’s video entry that won the third prize in the JC/CI/ITE category of the National Climate Change Competition 2012 Short Film Challenge.
This animation is featured in the first-ever national climate change roving exhibitions titled “Our Green Home” organised by the National Climate Change Secretariat. The exhibition runs from September 2012 to January 2013. For more information on the roving exhibition, please visit
