Expo 2020 Dubai
Connecting ideas, creating the future
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
The World Expo 2020 Dubai will take place despite a year’s delay.
Expo 2020 Dubai is a global exhibition of innovation, industry and national culture. It takes place every 5 years and lasts for 6 months. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this exhibition was postponed for a year, creating space to effectively set new goals and build stronger economic relationships. The main idea is a symbol of innovation and progress and is based on common purpose, commitment and cooperation of countries in the world. Participation was confirmed by 192 countries, and despite the pandemic, not a single country withdrew. This year, they can thus contribute to kick-starting the world economy after the coronary crisis thanks to the innovative inventions and solutions that will be showcased at Expo 2020 Dubai.
One of the three sub-themes of Expo 2020 Dubai is ‘Opportunity’ and represents harnessing the potential of individuals, businesses, companies and organisations to create a shared future. It brings with it a variety of discoveries and demonstrations that can help us build a better world for future generations. Visitors will learn about the global challenges facing our humanity and will be able to actively participate. Austria will show in its pavilion that every good idea starts with the right question and Belarus will present a forest of future technologies. China will showcase community building with a shared future, in the Italian pavilion visitors will see how beauty unites humanity and Norway will present itself as the world’s leading maritime nation.
Although Slovakia is a small country in the heart of Europe, it can deliver innovative solutions through new technologies while respecting environmental requirements. We can be proud of patents such as the helicopter, the parachute or the first electric motor. We are also making progress on the current issue of linking road and air transport thanks to AeroMobil. Most of our ground-breaking patents are related to air mobility and thus the theme of the national pavilion will be THE MOVEMENT OF THE FUTURE: HYDROGEN, AVIATION AND SPACE.
Another sub-theme of Expo 2020 Dubai is “Sustainability”. Through it, visitors can discover and admire innovative global projects that create new opportunities. All of the featured projects are committed to preserving our planet. Exceptional architectural projects that are created using the latest green building technologies are sure to catch the eye. The Czech Republic will present the Czech Spring in its pavilion and the Dutch pavilion will showcase the unity of water, energy and food. The Brazilian pavilion will show us diversity, the Swedish pavilion collaboration on innovation and the Singapore pavilion nature, food and the future. Something to look forward to!
