The understanding of the World’s fair – Expo Dubai 2020
“Connecting minds, creating the future”. Bearing this motto in mind, Expo Dubai 2020 brings together over 190 countries around the world to present their most ambitious projects and solutions of the most critical problems of humanity. It is an excellent opportunity for collaborations between states, and for exchanging ideas and solutions.
The concept of a world fair came up in 1851, and the first event of its kind took place in London. This year’s event, postponed by a year, due to the pandemic, is the expression of solidarity with the planet. The main topics of the event are Opportunity, Sustainability and Mobility. Each country is allocated to one of these categories depending on the main topic proposed.
The most interesting projects at Expo Dubai 2020
For the first time, each participating country has its own dedicated pavilion to present its own project. Moreover, there are pavilions dedicated to certain companies or the so-called “special pavilions” such as ‘The women’s pavilion’, ‘The mission impossible pavilion’ or ‘Terra – the sustainability pavilion’.
Each participating project is the expression of creativity and ingenuity. For example, the Chinese pavilion – one of the largest at this event – is designed to resemble a traditional lantern which turns into a dazzling digital light show at night. The Dutch pavilion instead, is a cone shaped vertical farm growing mushrooms that could be used from nutrition to construction. Inspired by the scientist, Stephen Hawking, the British pavilion is like a giant wood, sculptural cone that uses artificial intelligence to transform the input of the visitors into collective poems. The latter can be read on the illuminating displays of the 20 meters high façade.
Romania is also present at this event with a project dedicated to nature. The focus is on the Romanian mineral water sources, and tourists can try them in a “Water bar”. Tourists can also benefit of a virtual tour of Romania’s protected areas.
