Following the success of the first event, OPCD and Image Nation Abu Dhabi are pleased to announce the second edition of The Art of Cultural Diplomacy webinar series.
On this occasion, the groundbreaking documentary ‘Back To The Wild’ will be shown online.
Monday 29 June, 8pm UAE (GMT+4)
We share our planet with over 2 million species, but upto 2,000 become extinct every year. What if we could turn back the clock for one of them?
Back to the Wild explores this question, tracing the journey of Nya and her fellow Scimitar-horned Oryx as they travel from Abu Dhabi and return home to Chad after being extinct in the wild for over 25 years.
The film follows the Scimitar-horned Oryx Reintroduction Project — the largest mammalian re-introduction effort in history. It aims to serve as a blueprint for the re-introduction of species all over the world, and is a testament to the need to nurture and protect our natural environment for generations to come.
8pm: ‘Back To The Wild’ online screening (Film in English with Arabic subtitles)
8.35pm: Live Discussion (in English) between HE Omar Saif Ghobash, Assistant Minister for Public and Cultural Diplomacy and HE Razan Khalifa Al Mubarak, Managing Director, The Mohammed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund
