ABU DHABI 2021: Know your Civic Duty

   zayed
    The objectives of the UAE National Game are aligned with the Vision 2021 Knowledge Development of Abu Dhabi. We proudly presents the core values of The Spirit of the Union in the form of the UAE National Games. In the year 2006, His Highness Sheikh Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Chairman of the Executive Council, mandated the General Secretariat of the Executive Council, the Abu Dhabi Council for Economic Development and the Department of Planning and Economy, to develop a long-term economic vision for the emirate. We has integrated the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision for 2021 into its business processes. We assess gaps in services to our community and define solutions to fill the gaps.

The UAE National Games have a strategic mission to empower the UAE Nationals, especially the participants with productivity enabling attributes towards the country.

We are devoted in paving the roadmap to prosperity of UAE.

The Vision​

By 2021 Abu Dhabi intends to build a sustainable and diversified, high value-added economy that is well integrated into the global economy, and that provides more accessible and higher-value opportunities for all its citizens and residents

Abu Dhabi leads in ten index ranking as a "City of Opportunities" in a report by PwC (PricewaterhouseCoopers) - the only city covered in the Middle East. Abu Dhabi is also ranked as the most productive economy, especially the knowledge economy that calls for creativity - Abu Dhabi - Economy Today

The Objectives of UAE National Games  

The UAE is one of the rare nations of the world with a local population of only 20%. The rest of the population is diverse in ethnicity, culture, language and attitude towards life.  UAE has been successfully exhibiting and encouraging its unique cultural identity in all ages. Diversity management is the core effort of several government entities. This initiative ensures the balance of heterogeneity in the country. While cultural enrichment is a bonus the UAE enjoys, cultural preservation remains a national concern. In this open to all UAE Resident gaming event, the UAE nationals will have a chance to proudly present their core community values. This will also allow both expats and nationals to exchange knowledge for relevance in work and personal life. 

Objectives: Promote Loyalty, Patriotism, Creativity and Innovation in Emiratis

The following are the core values of the UAE National Games:
• Reduce biases and stereotypes between the unique UAE Culture and the Expat population.
• Reinforce the history of UAE.
• Promote self-actualization in the Emirati Individual (explained in the next section).
• Develop games that need disciplined practice.
• Develop impulse-based participation games.
• Improve focus and attention to detail.
• Bring out leadership skills
• Direct desirable behavior towards environmental preservation.
• Inculcate team collaboration and effective communication
• Encourage entrepreneurship.
• Provide directions for responsible and pro-active social behavior towards the development of the country.
• Improve confidence and risk taking
• Tap into hidden potential and encourage hiring by government and private sectors
• Add to the spirit and efforts of Watani

UAE National Games is a value driven initiative to develop competitive local human resources for the UAE market.

We: Towards Policy Achievement of UAE Vision 2021

The following are the gaps in the fulfilment of the Vision 2021 Policies, which We proposes to rectify through the UAE National Games:

Weakness in Governance
• Weak ties among talent economic diversification individuals belonging to different organisations; The seven sectors of the Abu Dhabi Government need to combine their capabilities through a centralized/complementary mode of communication. We invites representatives of each of the seven government sectors (G1 through G7) to participate in the National Games. Team and individual games will be designed with themes based on individual seven sectors. This will enable in “breaking the ice” between employees.
• Weaknesses in governance; another gap identified by the 2021 Vision. Knowledge development and sharing through the National Games web-portal will enable effective governance by data analytics provided by We (A Business Intelligence capability of We)
Human Development Index HDI: Harnessing the Local Talent
• HDI Human Development Index; this policy denotes the improvement of Emirati mortality, literacy and income. Information kiosks during the 10 day National Day events will enlighten latest practice in relevant fields. Time referenced games that require 6 - 4 months preparation time frame will induce education related benefits in participants. It will also improve their opportunities in job placement.
• Mobilization of human resources and investments to match opportunities for economic and business development; Human resource development is the driving factor of The UAE National Games. Entrepreneurship ideas based on innovations and opportunities in existing businesses will be improvised through games like “The Resourceful Businessman/woman”, “Listen to the Market” and several others. Winners will be evaluated through established criteria that are conducive to Emirati values and Abu Dhabi Vision 2021 Policies.
• Reduce unemployment in nationals to 5% Games will uncover hidden talents and potentials of Emirati, who will be given opportunities based on the 12 Intelligences presented by Gardner. Confidence and self-esteem will motivate niche hunting by unemployed Emiratis. Skill presentation will also attract prospective employers. Networking during the 10 days of the National Games will further improve chances of employment in private or government sector.
• Under performance in R&D and technical innovation; We will seek sponsors to award technology innovators submitting their patents/proposals in a standard scientific research format. Examples of topics will include Environmental Sustainability, Leisure and Recreation, Health and Disease Prevention etc.
Social and Regional Development of UAE: Individual Self Awareness and Presentation
• Abu Dhabi will ensure that social and regional development is balanced to bring the benefits of economic growth and wellbeing to the entire population of the Emirate; Invitations to the Games will extend to all areas of the Emirate. Networking opportunities will enable awareness amongst entire population. Equal opportunities for all Emiratis.
• Weaknesses in opportunity-based entrepreneurship; Games will promote proliferation of ideas and opportunities in business
• Absence of an environmentally sound and sustainable economy and society; Environmental issues will be discussed in the web portal, through kiosks and games (Recycle, Reduce, Re-use and Treasure from Trash).
Improve Economic Diversification through Local Involvement in Business Activities
• Low economic diversification; We will focus on “Specialized Skills” needed in the individual government sectors and device improvisation games that will encourage Emiratis entering in more diversified economic settings.
• To achieve its vision for 2021, Abu Dhabi will continue to diversify its economy, investing in those capital-intensive, export-oriented sectors in which it has or can build a competitive advantage. Key areas will be highlighted in web portals along with qualifications needed to obtain jobs. Entrepreneurship ideas will be encouraged.
• Abu Dhabi will build a sustainable economy; Knowledge development activities from heritage to community needs will be carried out in the web portal and gaming themes.
• Efforts to call people in Al Gharbia and Al Ain; Press releases and web invitations through social networks and other marketing media will be engaged to ensure complete coverage of invitations to the UAE National Games. Overnight stay, dining, transportation, registration and venue entry fees (at a reduced price to encourage participation) and other information will also be available in the web portal.

Team Workmanship in Emiratis: Improve Performance and Build Work Context Skills
• Loyalty To Our Country and Leadership; Heritage movies, Art Contests, Model Contests, Poetry, Short Stories, Software Modelling, and Role Playing will be gathered under the National Day Games.
• National Sense (Patriotism): Dedication in Serving the Country and in Implementing the National Identity; UAE Ranking in various exports, imports and economics will be shared and debated upon.
• Responsibility: Cooperation with co-workers and excelling tireless work to promote achievements and to establish strategic directions; a value that will be spoken about by honourable guest speakers.
