Expo 2020

The next World Expo takes place in 2020, hosted by Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Expo 2020 will take place from October 2020-April 2021, on the theme 'Connecting Minds, Creating the Future'. According to the organizers, the Expo will be a “festival of human ingenuity,” in recognition of collaboration and partnership as today's engines of growth. The Expo's theme also recognizes that generating sustainable solutions to global problems demands collaboration across cultures, nations and regions. Expo 2020 will have three sub-themes: Opportunity (reflecting the necessity of financial capital as a resource to support growth, and partnerships as a primary driver of innovation and employment), Mobility (physical mobility for individuals, access and distribution of goods and services, and virtual connectivity through information technology), and Sustainability (the need to use resources without compromising the ability of the planet to sustain future generations, in recognition of the role of natural and built habitats in ensuring human well-being and community resilience). Expo 2020 will be the first World Expo to take place in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia region.
