Learn About The Initiatives Behind the Most Exciting Event in the World.

As Expo 2020 draws visitors from all over the world, the massive event strives to have a positive influence on the cultural, social, and environmental environment in which we live. Dubai’s Expo strives to make a real difference with the help of individuals from all walks of life through a variety of activities and projects. Since creative ideas emerge from all over the world, the Expo projects give innovators who have ideas that benefit society, the environment, or both support, a platform, and publicity. Dubai’s Expo 2020 is supported by three key initiatives: the World Majlis, Sustainability, and the Global Best Practice program me.

Global Best Practice Programed

The Global Best Practice Programed highlights efforts from all over the world that have provided significant and long-lasting interventions with the intention of disseminating them and demonstrating real solutions to the biggest problems in the world. The programmer focuses on five areas that align with several of the Sustainable Development Goals set forward by the United Nations (UN SDGs). The committee selected 25 projects from 1,175 applications for the global call for proposals. In addition, they have chosen 20 Untold Stories from around the globe that highlight local initiatives and tales of workable solutions for both people and the environment.

Inclusive and Sustainable Service Delivery

The first is inclusive and sustainable service delivery, which focuses on services like solar energy, the internet, clean water, and recycling. It is motivated by individuals who work to better communities’ quality of lives by offering trustworthy services. Their innovations have an influence everywhere, including refugee camps and urban areas.

Livelihood and Enterprise Development

The second area is livelihood and enterprise development, which includes initiatives from all over the world that offer energizing alternative job and income opportunities, like promoting women in the workforce, offering competitive goods and services, and enhancing market access to give people the resources they need to improve their lives.


Social Development

Social development is another topic covered by the Global Best Practice programmer effort. With a focus on giving them the right resources, they can break the cycle of poverty and gain access to cheap healthcare and education, enabling social mobility.

Resilient Habitats

Resilient ecosystems are also a focus of this effort. By adopting and putting into practice resilience methods to protect their human, economic, and ecological assets against threats like climate change and rapid urbanization, communities can more effectively deal with challenges and adversity.

Water, Food, and Energy Security

The initiative’s final area of attention is the security of food, water, and energy. Putting an emphasis on resource management and intelligent consumption to better satisfy the demands of an expanding global population.

Sustainability

The Dubai Expo wants to be one of the greenest exhibitions ever. They aim to leave a lasting impression after Expo by integrating sustainability into everything they stand for.

Relentless Habitats

Resilient ecosystems are also a focus of this effort. By adopting and putting into practice resilience methods to protect their human, economic, and ecological assets against threats like climate change and rapid urbanization, communities can more effectively deal with challenges and adversity.

On all long-term construction projects surrounding the Expo site, 5.5 megawatts of renewable energy systems were deployed by Expo. This is enough energy to travel 180,000 times back and forth from Downtown Dubai to the Corniche in Abu Dhabi. Additionally, Expo has reduced water usage in the buildings by 52.4 percent in 2019. When compared to the minimum water demand set by the Dubai Electric and Water Authority (DEWA). This is equivalent to 41 Olympic-sized swimming pools’ worth of water each year, or 102,835,000 liters.


Promoting Natural Solutions

Expo’s goal is to lay the foundation for a lasting legacy for next generations. They achieve this by emphasizing technological advancements and human growth while safeguarding the natural and ecological resources of the globe. At Expo 2020, 50% of the landscape plants will be native and adaptable species, and 95% will be following the event. Managing 95% of the landscape without using chemical pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers is a key sustainability objective.

Reducing Waste

Waste minimization is one of the main objectives of Expo’s environmental strategy. By removing waste from landfills, 85% of the garbage will be divided into other waste streams. This occurs during construction, use, and decommissioning. The Planet over Plastic Pledge, which Expo has also introduced, calls on attendees and partners to reduce packaging and single-use items as well as on-site recycling.

World Majlis

World expos have been a special place for bringing together inquisitive minds interested in the future questions and, in doing so, learning more about one another, since the first Great Exhibition in London in 1851. Expo 2020 Dubai has proudly continued it by fusing it with the venerable majlis custom of the Emirati people.

Global conversations and debates are necessary to bring about change in the world. The World Majlis at Expo aspires to incite fresh thinking and viewpoints through meaningful and impactful conversations. Eight to ten prominent thought leaders from around the world who have made outstanding contributions to the subject were invited to the forum. Students and the general public are welcome to participate in each Majlis and offer input.

The Next Gen World Majlis was a part of the World Majlis and provided a young people’s perspective on Expo 2020 and its aftermath. It includes the Women’s World Majlis, a series of debates focused on important female topics. In collaboration with the Women’s Pavilion, this is being provided. The Women’s World Majlis centers each Expo thematic week on the perspectives of women.
