Dubai Cares has kick started the new year with an exciting new initiative for Dubai residents. If you’re on the lookout for an exciting adventure and an opportunity to enjoy the beautiful winter weather, join Dubai Cares and Dubai Culture in the “Dubai Cares Scavenger Hunt”, held under the patronage of Her Highness Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors Office at Dubai Culture & Arts Authority. The ‘hunt’ has been specifically designed to residents a opportunity to explore and rediscover the values of this beautiful city.
Held in collaboration with Dubai Culture, the “Dubai Cares Scavenger Hunt” will be running from 8 to 29 January 2018 across the city of Dubai, giving residents an opportunity to scout the city for 15 hidden light bulbs, which captures the idea that “Knowledge is a light that never fades”. The light bulbs are specially designed pieces of art and are inspired by the values instilled by the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nayhan in the citizens and residents of the UAE alike. The light bulbs are placed at 15 key locations in the city that cover both old and new Dubai.
How to participate:
To complete the hunt, the location of the 15 hidden light bulbs must be identified. To locate the structures, participants should download the “Dubai Cares” app on Apple Store or Google Play Store, where they will be able to access 15 different challenges and attempt to solve each with the help of 3 unique hints. Once the location is identified, participants should scan a QR code through the application, which has been placed on the structure itself. Upon scanning the QR Code, the challenge will be unlocked and the participant will be rewarded with one point before moving on to the next challenge.
