United Nations to shine spotlight on SDGs at Expo 2020 Dubai

ROME, SEP 28 – The United Nations has presented its
participation at Expo 2020 Dubai, saying this will focus on
shining the spotlight on achieving the Sustainable Development
Goals (SDGs).
The UN said it sees Expo 2020, which opens on October 1 and runs
until the end of March, as an opportunity to showcase how the
United Nations System works to deal with global challenges and
to create a world in which everyone thrives in peace, dignity
and equality on a healthy planet.
The United Nations will have a dedicated space, #UNHub, in the
thematic pavilion dedicated to the SDGs.
Mission Possible – The Opportunity Pavilion, is one of three
thematic pavilions curated by Expo 2020 that showcases how small
actions can make a big impact on communities and inspires
visitors to become agents of change for a better future.
Furthermore, the UN’s agencies, funds and programmes are taking
the lead on international days and thematic events and
activities during the six months of the World Fair.
The United Nations has also invited participating countries to
highlight their own work to achieve the SDGs, especially during
the Global Goals week from January 16 to 22.
Expo 2020 Dubai is the first World Fair to be held in the Middle
East and, with 192 participating nations, each with their own
pavilion, it will be the most diverse in the history of the
event. (ANSA).
