Themes for the future - Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability
To build a better world, we need to use our heads and our hearts. The Expo subthemes help to guide us on this journey together.
We all have the power to shape the future. Expo 2020 aims to unlock this potential in multiple ways, such as supporting solutions to social problems through the Expo Live programme and introducing visitors to new ideas that inspire them to act.
When we enable smarter movement of knowledge, ideas and goods, a new world of possibilities unfolds. Expo 2020 looks at how this has helped us explore new frontiers, and how humanity is making greater leaps than ever through digital connectivity.
The need to live in balance with the world we inhabit has never been more critical. Expo 2020 is embracing alternative sources of food, water, and clean and renewable energy, and encouraging us all to reassess how we can preserve the planet.
- Watch a screening on the ceiling! You’ll find ground breaking architecture at every turn, from the world’s biggest 360-degree projection surface on Al Wasl Plaza’s steel dome to the all-natural materials that make the Opportunity Pavilion, including 2,500 tonnes of stone and 111 km of rope.
- You’ve seen Expo 2020 from the ground, now it’s time to get a bird’s eye view from the top of the rotating observation tower.
- Enjoy art installations from local and global talents across Expo 2020’s living canvas.
- Arab-style vistas will sit throughout Expo 2020, including palm groves, jasmine trees, wadi figs and desert scenery. You can keep cool wandering under shaded canopies provided by the national tree of the UAE, the Ghaf tree.
Expo 2020 seeks to encourage a spirit of curiosity, amazement and fun in younger visitors, whether they’re joining a make-your-own-robot workshop, learning about 3D-printed human organs or burning energy via exercise-gaming activities.
Academics, inventors, artists, tech pioneers, out-of-the-box thinkers – Expo 2020 will be a haven for interesting and inquisitive personalities!
Start-ups and international conglomerates alike can benefit from being a part of Expo 2020. With millions of visitors and 190 participating countries, the next World Expo is brimming with business possibilities.
