Following a month-long, five-country, transcontinental journey, the Zayed Sustainability Prizes Guiding Light campaign is set to arrive in Abu Dhabi on 9 January, 2019.

The campaign will conclude with a 20mx20m light installation, comprised of 2,000 solar lanterns, arranged to reveal the Zayed Sustainability Prize logo with the support of 10 Special Olympics athletes from the UAE.

Guiding Light, which was inspired by the UAE Founding Father, Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan’s vision for global sustainability and humanitarianism, has successfully completed light-up events in four countries, followed by the donation of the 2,000 solar lanterns from each event, to off-grid communities in Indonesia, Bolivia, Bangladesh, and Kenya.
