My name is Huda Shaka (هدى الشكعة)…environmental scientist turned sustainability specialist and urban planner.  Passionate about creating healthy, liveable, sustainable places.

Based in Dubai, I have been working in the Middle East as a sustainability consultant/advisor since 2007, focused on introducing and implementing sustainability concepts on large masterplan and infrastructure projects.

It has been an exciting time for the region in terms of the growth of the sustainability agenda, and with that comes change, successes, disappointments and challenges.

I have started this blog as a forum for sharing opinions, ideas, questions and lessons learnt, and ultimately as a way of contributing to the sustainable development of the region.

Would love to hear your views and comments 🙂

    Hallo Huda,

    I would like to first of all applaud you on this blog, I have just by accident discovered it and I am so impressed by your style of writing and views regarding sustainability.

    It is quite refreshing to come across a blog that embraces contemporary concepts and fully understands sustainability not just as a word but a vision for the future of our cities.

    I am no writer like you are, but I am passionate about the concept of urban spaces and sustainable development, I am now looking forward to your next post, maybe we can exchange notes!

    Best Wishes
