New mangrove escape room experience by Tecom to debut in Dubai

TECOM Group has partnered with the Environment Agency – Abu Dhabi (EAD) and Emirates Nature-WWF to unveil an innovative experience: the Escape Climate Change – Mangrove Edition escape room.

This ‘adventure’ is part of EAD’s and Emirates Nature-WWF’s commitment to achieving the UAE’s national sustainability goals by adopting ‘nature-based solutions’ to tackle societal challenges.

It aims to raise awareness about the severity of climate risks and provide pathways to join the fight against climate change.

The experience kicks off the new season of its nationwide tour at Dubai Media City on October 12-13.

After its debut, the escape room will hit the road, inviting thousands of residents across the UAE to discover the wonders of mangroves while sparking off global climate conversations.

Dr Shaikha Salem Al Dhaheri, Secretary General of the Environment Agency – Abu Dhabi (EAD), said: “Initiatives like the ‘Escape Climate Change – Mangrove Edition’ Escape Room provide a pathway for UAE youth and the community to understand the science and complexity involved in building climate resiliency, empowering them to step up and make greater contributions towards climate and nature, through citizen science and volunteerism.”

“Immersive physical experiences can transform abstract concepts into palpable, memorable learning moments,” said Majed Al Suwaidi, SVP of Dubai Media City, part of TECOM Group.

“The Escape Climate Change – Mangrove Edition escape room delivers an immersive experience, designed to inspire greater interest in the climate-nature crisis and motivate participants to be part of the solution,” said Laila Mostafa Abdullatif, director general at Emirates Nature-WWF. “We welcome all participants to join the Leaders of Change community, through which they can participate in conservation field trips and help implement Nature-based Solutions on the ground.”

The Escape Climate Change – Mangrove Edition escape room is designed to ignite climate resilience and inspire community engagement in conservation.

It’s open to everyone and people of all ages.

The escape room’s tour will continue to Dubai Science Park, TECOM Group’s buzzing science-focused community, as it hosts the annual WeWalk charitable walkathon on November 18.

The escape room gives people the chance to learn firsthand about the science of climate adaptation.

Visitors will also be invited to take meaningful climate action by signing up to join nature-based activities and become citizen scientists through EAD’s and Emirates Nature-WWF’s ‘Sahim’ programme and Emirates Nature-WWF’s ‘Leaders of Change’ platform.

These initiatives empower the community to make a difference by contributing to conservation research and decision-making, and by gathering valuable data about local species and habitats.
