He regularly lends support to poetry competitions and other events, allowing them to be held under his patronage and attending in person as many of them as he can. In addition, he consistently demonstrates commitment to cultural, artistic, literary and innovation-based initiatives in the community.
Like many of his fellow countrymen, Sheikh Mohamed also follows a number of sports in the UAE and he regularly meets with Emirati sportsmen and women to recognize their achievements.
