Hundreds of drones lit up the skies of Dubai last night near the Burj Al Arab as they carefully formed an image of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
The drones were maneuvered afterwards to change to the words ‘Thank You Sheikh Mohammed’ as well as into a message that promotes the UAE’s Year of Tolerance, as per a report from Time Out Dubai.
The 10-minute light show also featured an image of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai.
In an earlier report from WAM, 2019 – the ‘Year of Tolerance’ will focus on five main pillars. First, to deepen the values of tolerance and co-existence among cultures and peoples by concentrating on teaching the youth on the values of tolerance.
The second pillar seeks to solidify the UAE as the global capital for tolerance, via a series of initiatives and projects specialised intolerance and dialogue between various cultures and civilisations. Third, enacting multiple cultural programmes and contributions to build tolerant communities.
As for the fourth pillar, a focus on legislative and policy-oriented objectives that contribute mandating cultural and religious tolerance, via dialogue. Lastly, the fifth pillar will focus on promoting tolerance and co-existence via targeted media initiatives and projects.
