As part of the Year of the 50th celebrations, the UAE’s Golden Jubilee Committee announces its latest initiative, Letters to the Future. The initiative invites all those who call the UAE home to write a letter to their future selves, mapping out their dreams and envisioning their future journey in the UAE. Participants can submit their letters in various formats, including written format, video or image on the Year of the 50th website.
The various phases of the Year of the 50th celebrations reflect on the remarkable first 50 years of the nation, draw the ambitions for the next 50 years and set out ways to accomplish these dreams. By writing these letters, the UAE public is thus encouraged to envision their future as key contributors and builders of the nation, for the next 50 years and beyond.
Communities across the Emirates are encouraged to submit their letters to the website www.UAEYearOf.ae, which will subsequently be published in an online letters gallery. They will also act as a time capsule of how dreams have evolved and how far the dreamers have come on their journey, allowing for opportunities of reflection and accountability. Upon submission, participants will receive an email to their inbox with their submitted letters on the official Year of the 50th letterhead with an option to remind them of their dreams, based on their chosen timeframe, which can be in 5, 10, 20 or 50 years.
Letters to the Future is the latest initiative by the UAE Golden Jubilee Committee, which governs year-long initiatives, activities and grand celebrations that engage all those who call the UAE home.
