The Theme

The Expo 2020 Dubai will not be confined to a physical site, or to a six month period of time. It has already begun and manifests itself wherever people are coming together to reflect on the course of the future and the shape it might take. Expo 2020 Dubai will provide a platform to foster creativity, innovation and partnerships globally. Its participants and visitors will explore how connecting, collaborating and forming new partnerships can help develop ideas and innovations in order to create a better future. “Connecting Minds, Creating the Future”, is the underlying theme. The nations and organisations that take part in Expo 2020 Dubai as well as, and the millions who visit, will explore the power of connections across the spheres of Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability – the three subthemes.

Between October 2020 and April 2021, Dubai will host the next World Expo
