    Dedicated UN Pavilion at Expo will unite people for a brighter future

    The UN and Expo 2020 share many of the same aims, not least a desire to engage and inspire all visitors

    The United Nations will have its own dedicated pavilion at Expo 2020, providing the organisation with a unique platform to highlight to millions of visitors the value of working together to tackle global challenges and build a peaceful, sustainable and just future for all.

    Under the theme “We the Peoples: Shaping Our Future Together”, the UN Pavilion will be curated to inspire many new advocates to connect more closely with its work – revealing and shining a light on an organisation that is open and accessible.

    Building on Expo 2020’s theme of ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’, it will be organised around a central, programmable space for events, presentations, discussions and meetings.

    Surrounding exhibits will also tell the stories and achievements of the UN – including its agencies, funds and programmes – and above all the people who benefit from its work.

    Both Expo 2020 and the UN share many of the same aims, not least a desire to engage and inspire all visitors – governments, civil society, the private sector and academia, as well as millions of individuals – to seek solutions to the issues we all face, including poverty and climate change, and to build the future we all want and deserve.

    “We are very grateful to the Government and people of the United Arab Emirates, and the organisers, for the opportunity to be part of Expo 2020 and for the generous support provided,” said Maher Nasser, Commissioner General of the United Nations at Expo 2020 Dubai.

    The UN’s participation at Expo follows an announcement by Antonio Guterres, United Nations Secretary-General, who said the UN would commemorate the year 2020 with worldwide youth-driven conversations on the role of global cooperation in building the future the world wants, and deserves.

    Its dedicated pavilion also forms part of its 75th anniversary celebrations, with UN Day – held annually on 24 October – next year to focus on commemorating 75 years since the adoption of the UN Charter in 1945.

    It will be one of the first celebrations after Expo 2020 opens on 20 October 2020.
