The new project is a seed that we plant today. We expect future generations to reap the benefits, driven by their passion to learn.
His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Ruler of Dubai, accompanied by His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, unveiled the Mars 2117 programme and announced the intention of the UAE to lead the initiative.
The Mars 2117 programme will be developed and executed in partnership with major international scientific research institutions, with the first phase focusing on preparing the skills to achieve the necessary scientific breakthroughs. It will also seek to develop faster means of transportation to and from the Red Planet.
It is envisaged that the city would first be built by robots. During the Summit, the Mars 2117 team demonstrated its vision of how the city would work by using virtual reality.

Commencement of the Planetary Government Summit of 2117
The preview of life on Mars in 2117 transported viewers into the future and told them the story of how humanity began settling on Mars.
The first scientists and researchers to land on Mars arrived in pods, and after 20 years of extensive research, they built the infrastructure they needed to assemble the robots that would build the cities.
The cities are built vertically, with zones dedicated to specific purposes. A dome provides shelter and generates oxygen, enabling citizens to breathe freely inside without wearing a space suit.
Capital Dome is the administrative and political centre, home to the United Government of Mars, which governs the planet’s development and its relations with Earth and other inhabitable planets.
Superconducting nanotechnologies harvest solar energy and transfer it wirelessly, while a hyperloop is the fastest ground transport in the solar system.
We hope you had a pleasant journey and an enlightening stay on the red planet. The City of Wisdom embodies the hopes and dreams of humanity, towards a unified vision of life thriving on Mars. This guide will assimilate you into the culture and norms of the city.
The platform showcased how life on Mars is anticipated to look and the expected lifestyle humans would experience there, taking into account how they would access food, modes of transport, energy production, infrastructure works and construction materials, among other considerations
