There is no doubt about it moving to a new country can be overwhelming.

More often than not we arrive with a huge container but no extended family or support network.  Family members can obviously never be replaced but making new friends can be done (in time) as long as you join in with activities whether it be through work, school or hobbies.  However, there are often times where you need that extra support and would like to meet people who are in a similar situation to you whether it be to meet families with twins or children with Special Needs.  Maybe you are going through a divorce and need to speak to other people going through the same thing – Dubai is full of people with initiative who have set up some really useful groups that can help you through the ups and down of life in Dubai.

Living overseas can sometimes be difficult, especially if your host culture is dramatically different from the way things are “back home.” Many new expatriate spouses feel overwhelmed and disoriented by the shock of a novel cultural environment. Some respond by clinging to the familiar: they make a point of socializing only with other expats, and maintain minimal contact with local people.

IMG_6359150 Students from Dubai’s Jumeirah College volunteered their time on the 11th year of the UNWTO World Responsible Tourism Day to clean up the Dubai desert whilst learning more about the local Bedouin’s connection to the desert along with their traditions, customs and cuisine.

The activity was the brainchild of Platinum Heritage Tourism, a Dubai based desert safari company specializing in authentic safari’s that showcase Dubai’s environmental and cultural heritage. “The desert is such a fragile environment” says Adam McEwan, founder and Managing Director of Platinum Heritage. “The effects of dune bashing, litter and modern development has significantly endangered the flora and fauna of the desert. Unless we educate people about how we can reverse these effects, we may lose this environmental heritage forever. Students are the voices of the future and they have become our enthusiastic conservation warriors”. Read more

The Dubai International Writers’ Centre (DIWC), the first of its type in the Middle East, will be an international hub and a focal point for creativity, whilst also fostering an appreciation of the ways in which different cultures express themselves in the written and spoken form.

The DIWC was officially launched at a grand opening ceremony held in the Centre’s home in the picturesque Al Shindagha Historical Neighbourhood. Attendees, including superstars of the international writing world, top Arab authors and local dignitaries, were given a glimpse into the history of the region and treated to Nabati poetry recitals and cultural performances to commemorate the opening.

The DIWC provides a space for visiting writers and writers-in-residence, who will lead courses in creative writing in all its disciplines – fiction and non-fiction; poetry; lyrics; play-writing; film scriptwriting and calligraphy. Read more
