Hosting the first World Expo in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia region presents an immense opportunity to inspire, empower and drive lasting positive environmental, social and economic change on a global scale, ensuring a meaningful and measurable legacy.
By challenging and addressing key conversations, such as climate change, responsible production, circular economies and ethical fashion, we hope that each of our visitors embarks on a purposeful journey after Expo 2020 to continue to seek collective solutions to global challenges in a culmination of innovation and collaboration.
As the world strives to create a cleaner, safer, healthier future, Expo 2020, with all its infrastructure, innovations and collaborations, serves as a blueprint towards a viable future, establishing sustainable benchmarks and leaving a meaningful legacy for generations to come.
The Expo 2020 Dubai site will live long after we close our doors at the end of March 2022, as it transitions into District 2020. This sustainable, human-centric smart city will reuse at least 80% of the Expo-built infrastructure, including LEED Gold and Platinum-certified buildings. As it transforms into an integrated mixed-use community, it will carry on and fulfil Expo’s founding vision to be an ecosystem to connect, create and innovate.
The connections we will all make, our hopes and aspirations, and the opportunity to experience the innovation, ideas, cultures and traditions of 190+ participating countries will all translate into building a better tomorrow for all of humanity.
