Opening of Worldskills Abu Dhabi 2017 – great show

Opening of the 44 Games, more space, events and competitors than ever

Team Germany

Team Palestine

All Teams – 1300 young people – 4 days challenge ahead

The day started with a sightseeing tour and ended with a great opening ceremony – music, speeches, dance and the walk and the oath of the nations – it is like the olympic games – great show.

I learned a lot about this peace of land – an architect showed us around – that was absolutely informativ. He explained the history, the culture and had a lot of stories – great day. I have been here already three times (foundation of Arab Countries Water Utility Association – ACWUA in 2009) but I learned most today.
