"The exploration and production of natural resources is a fairly new development in my country - the Emirate of Abu Dhabi started exporting oil in 1962. Before that, they were fishing for pearls - which was also a very risky activity, just as mining! The visit of the mining museum and World Cultural Heritage site in Rammelsberg was particularly interesting to me. It shows that people can become very creative when it comes to developing the technologies they require to secure their living. When there is a will, there is a way. I believe that we need more of this creative spirit nowadays to promote innovative technologies." Fatma Ahmad Al Suwaidi, 20, studies chemical engineering at the Petroleum Institute. #JourneyOfDiscovery20152015-08-20T12:34:28+0200
