As we know, many resources of the earth are exhaustible and nowadays we are living in the urban renaissance that required a lot of resources all the time. Most of the people are using the resources of the earth with the least amount of knowledge of the dangers that may happen to our world. People are being selfish and ignoring the fact that our behavior and practices are the biggest threat for the safety of the earth. (Sustainability, 2001)
This project will mainly discuss the sustainable and unsustainable practices at ADU campus and dorms and we are going to discuss the possible solutions to apply the concepts of sustainability and sum up with recommendations that may be useful tips to be used in the future for the following projects in Abu Dhabi University and other projects in the world.
