The Expo site will display what a sustainable future could look like
Expos can change cities. By drawing large numbers of international visitors and inviting countries to showcase the very best of their societies, they introduce new possibilities to the local landscape. And when the party is over, the attendees take what they have learnt back home with them.
This is perhaps aptly summed up in the theme of Dubai Expo 2020: “Connecting minds, creating the future.” The mega-event that for the past eight years has been a vision, a blueprint and then a work in progress, is finally reality, ready for the world stage.
Last night, as the opening ceremony got under way, viewers witnessed the scope of what a post-pandemic future could hold.
