ABU DHABI - Over 100 staff from the Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority (ADTA), led by its chairman, His Excellency Sheikh Sultan Bin Tahnoon Al Nahyan, stood up to be counted as it joined in the worldwide ‘2008 Stand Up Session’ organized by Mission Green Earth.

The ADTA contingent stood for two minutes outside its headquarters early this morning to join the global exercise which pledges people and organizations to the UN Millenium Development Goals, which followers hope to achieve by 2015.

The goals – aimed at eradicating poverty and supporting an environmentally sustainable world – require followers to pledge to act against poverty, disease and hunger, to adopt sustainable measures in lifestyles, to work towards universal primary education and a reduction in child mortality, promote gender equality and create long-term sustainable partnerships.

The ‘Stand Up Session’ is being marked around the world with the final numbers being assessed for a Guinness World Record.
