The CEBC Schools Programme, with the support of Diamond Developers, is proud to announce its Ambassador Field Trip to The Sustainable City!
The Sustainable City is the region’s first fully-integrated sustainable community. The Sustainable City places a priority on nature, green spaces, health, education and recreational activities, with an emphasis on nurturing a sustainable lifestyle that is allied to a strong sense of community. It spreads over five million square feet, and is located in Dubai Land on the Al Qudra Road.

WHAT IS THE COST?
There is no cost to students for this field trip. We can take two student Ambassadors, aged 13 and above, from each school registered in the CEBC Schools Programme. You are welcome to give the names of more than two students, but please indicate your first preference for attendance, as other students will be added to a cancellation waitlist.
Teachers are also welcome to accompany students.
We have room for approximately 50 students on the field trip.
HOW DO WE GET THERE?
Students will be able to catch a bus to the Sustainable City from Al Wasl Sports Club on the day. Please note that you may also make your own way to the Sustainable City if it is easier. When you register, you will be asked whether you require bus transport or not.
WHAT DO WE NEED TO BRING?
Students may like to bring a pen and paper to make notes, or a phone to take photographs. Students are welcome to bring their own lunch and water – food is not provided. Students are also advised to bring a hat or apply sunscreen prior to the visit if sun exposure is a concern.
HOW DO WE REGISTER?
We will open up registration for students on the 2nd of March 2018. You will receive an email on this date with information on registering.
Please note that we have a limited number of places – please only register if you intend to take part on the day. Places will be allocated on a first in, first served basis, with two places initially available to each school.
Please let us know as soon as possible if you have to cancel your attendance, so other students can go.
You must be a member of the CEBC Schools programme to register students. To join, please visit the CEBC Schools website.
Remember, registrations open on the 2nd of March, and Ambassadors must be 13 or older to attend.
If you have any other questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to visiting The Sustainable City with you!
