Zimbabwe's Participation at Expo 2020 Dubai

Expo 2020 Dubai – “Connecting Minds, Creating the Future”

Expo 2020 Dubai is the first World Expo to be held in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia, and has been envisioned to be a festival of imagination and innovation with a transformative impact on humanity, the planet and the UAE as a nation. The Expo, which will run from 1 October 2021 to 30 March 2022, has been themed “Connecting Minds, Creating the Future,” which represents the potential of what can be achieved when meaningful collaborations and partnerships are forged. This main theme is supported by (3) main subthemes: Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability, and these are indicated to be the timeless drivers of progress that continue to inspire people, organizations, and nations in their endeavours to create a better future. The three sub themes will be interpreted through the lenses of Innovation, Inclusion and Understanding.

The theme recognizes that today’s challenges are far too complex to be solved in isolation, and that the creation of sustainable solutions to global problems demands readiness to reach out across geographies, institutional boundaries, industry clusters, cultures, and disciplines. Thus, the Organisers envisage Expo 2020 Dubai to be a celebration of how much humanity can accomplish by joining hands to solve common challenges. Participants, which include Zimbabwe, have been encouraged to translate the theme into an authentic portfolio of stories and perspectives that highlight the interconnections between sub-themes in a way that engages visitors of all ages
