    What we looked at
    As the world’s first index focused on tracking and driving global optimism levels through environmental and social change, the Global Optimism Outlook Survey covered subjects such as technology, travel, and climate change, which are linked to Expo’s three key subthemes: Opportunity, Mobility, and Sustainability.

    All of this just goes to show that no matter the demographic, nationality, age or gender, there’s one thing that truly binds us all: our desire to create a happier, more inclusive, cleaner planet.

    When working together and more connections create lasting impact

    Dreaming about things that are possible is one thing, making it a reality and inspiring meaningful action is another. And this is already happening at Expo 2020 with our Expo Live Grantees. Celebrate how far humanity has come, read about the people who are coming together to make the glass overflow, and join us in building a brighter tomorrow for future generations. It seems like there’s a lot to look forward to.
